The First Milwaukee Dragon Boat Race
Due to low registration, the event has been canceled.
Come celebrate the first ever Dragon Boat Race in Milwaukee! Brought to you by the Chinese Culture Fest located at the Milwaukee Art Museum. This breathtaking popular Chinese boat race is filled with vibrantly colored boats propelled by men and women vigorously paddling to be the first to cross the finish line. Not only will the visuals be pure excitement, but the sounds of pounding drums from the boats, roaring cries of teams working in unison, and the thumping of water as boats power toward the finish will be a symphonic delight.
