Cleveland Dragon Boat Festival 

When: Sat., Aug. 12 2017
Participants have been prepping for the Cleveland Dragon Boat Festival's 250-meter heats since late May. An ancient sport whose roots can be found in China, where it began more than 2,000 years ago, Dragon Boating has been a popular sport in many Asian nations ever since. A typical dragon boat is close to 50 feet in length and holds 20 paddlers, one of whom drums so paddlers can work in sync. Three teams compete in each heat, and the teams with the three fastest times will compete for the championship. The fest starts at 8 a.m. on the waterfront at Wendy Park; check out the music, crafts vendors and family activities too. (Leuthauser) 440-399-7373, cledba.org.
