The event boasts a field of more than 80 teams with over 8,000 spectators and a wide variety of Chinese artisans either performing or displaying their wares. The sport itself dates back some 2,000 years and the dragon boat is a spectacle to behold. The slim, 39-foot teakwood racer (and fiberglass models) is crafted today in only a handful of boat-yards in Hong Kong. Distinguished by a fierce-looking dragon’s head at the prow and a tail at the stern.
