13th Annual Chicago Dragon Boat Race for Literacy
Experience the excitement as teams compete in a fast-paced race on the south branch of the Chicago River in decorated dragon boats. Explore music, food and crafts as well as performances from cultural centers across Chicago. Proceeds are donated to promote literacy.
Since I don't have enough people interested in joining a team for this event, I thought it would be fun anyways just to attend and enjoy the festivites. How about we all come out around 11am-12noon and grab some drinks/food in the Chinatown area and watch some of the dragon boat races.
Here's the info about the event:
When: July 13, 2013, Saturday
Times: 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Where: Ping Tom Memorial Park, Chicago
Cost: FREE for spectators
I plan on just being there between 11am-2pm so please let me know if you're interested in joining along for the festivities.
