Out on the Town: Dragon Boat Festival
On Sunday, I stopped by the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival. It has been labeled on of Denver's best festivals so I swung by for a bit. Held on Sloan's Lake, the 2-day festival involves dragon boat competitions on the lake with more than 50 teams battling!
I watched as pairs of elaborate, beautifully decorated dragon boats raced furiously across the lake to the beat of drums with some teams chanting. How cool!
The festival also had an Asian marketplace which featured a variety of Asian foods, a beer garden, multiple vendors, children's arts areas, community groups, and three stages holding various performances. Here are a few pictures!
