Nanaimo Events – Nanaimo Dragon Boat Festival 2015
July 10, 2015 - July 12, 2015Free
Here’s an annual weekend that’s packed with fun and enjoyment for the whole family!
Presented by Save-on-Foods, the Nanaimo Dragon Boat Festival is now on its 13th year of running and is back with even more exciting dragon boat races. As you’ll probably agree, dragon boat racing is one of the most exhilarating sports in the world. Even if you’re just a spectator, this sport will leave you breathless from cheering for your favourite team. There are over 70 racing teams that are joining this year.
To complete your experience, have a Shriners pancake breakfast, participate in the candle ceremony, shop at the Nanaimo Farmer’s Market, and get a drink in one of the beer gardens.
