Would you like to join the Filipino Young Professionals(FYP)-DC Dragon Boat team on May 17th and 18th at the 2014 DC Dragon Boat Festival at Thompson Boat center in Georgetown? The cost will be TBD (planning stages atm) per person and that includes 3 practices leading up to the Festival weekend. Here is a link to the festival website: http://www.dragonboatdc.com
Also, if you don't plan on paddling still come out and enjoy the festival and support your Pinoy teams. It's a great time. Thanks!!
The festival will be held near Thomspon Boat Center, 2900 Virginia Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20037.
Parking: There is a decent amount of parking on K Street along the Georgetown Waterside, directly below the Whitehurst Freeway. This is metered parking. There are also parking garages for use too. The closest paid lots are in the Watergate Complex, Washington Harbour, and at the Kennedy Center.
Hope to see you all there!!
