Dragon Boat Races in Flushing Meadow Corona Park

We will take a 4 to 5 mile walk around Flushing Meadow Corona Park, site of the 1939 and 1964 World Fairs, and then at 1:00 p.m. enjoy the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival, including musical and martial arts performances and Dragon Boat races on Meadow Lake. See more about the festival here:

There will be Spanish and Asian food vendors in the park but we will not be passing any stores so bring food and drink or try out the vendors.

Meet: Take the 7 train to the Mets-Willet Point stop and walk across the pedestrian bridge to the park, we will meet by the benches outside the rest rooms that are at the end of the bridge.

Leader: Tom Bergen [masked][masked]

Contact hike leader directly if you have questions about the hike.

    Thanks! That was fun. And next time I'm there I'll make sure I have time to walk around the lake. :-)

    The Dragon Boat Festival on Meadow Lake in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park is an annual tradition now in its 22nd year. This August 10 and 11, 2013, over 170 teams will compete for $60,000 in prizes. Each team competes by rowing a "dragon boat," a narrow boat decorated like a Chinese dragon with a colorful head and tail.
    There will be music, dancing, martial arts demonstrations, and more. Bring a chair and a sun-shading umbrella, and grab a prime space at the waterside pavilion on the north side (closest to Unisphere) of Meadow Lake. Last year the food vendors were overwhelmed by demand, so pack snacks.
