2016 Toledo Dragon Boat Festival

The 2016 Dragon Boat Festival in Toledo, Ohio was over the weekend. This is the second year I was working with the Partners in Education to document the event for them.

Partners In Education hosts the annual Dragon Boat Festival and race. Dragon Boat racing is a team water sport that is growing fast worldwide. The annual Toledo Dragon Boat Festival draws over 30 local businesses and organizations to participate with teams. Each team consists of a 25 person roster that includes 20 paddlers, 1 steersman, 1 drummer, and 3 alternates. The festival draws 700 paddle team participants, 100+ event volunteers, and 5,000 to 10,000 event spectators.
