Dragon Boat Festival on Lake Champlain in August

One of the things I am looking forward to during my summer at home in Vermont is participating in the Dragon Boat Festival/Race/Fundraiser. The even raises money for DragonHeart Vermont (for breast cancer survivors) as well as for the VNAs Hopsice and the Vermont Respite House which provides care for terminally ill patients.

In addition to being able to help these organzations, it is a fun day. I have been paddling something or another all my life, from war canoes, kayaks and canoes at the age of 7 at summer camp, to rafts on Class 5 waters in West Virginia’s Gauley River to kayaking all over Lake Champlain with my hubby.

The dragon boats are beautiful and have teams of 20. Check out the site and the pics! Come out and cheer us on this August.
