Dragon Boat Festival & Racing

I am in the process of updating my information on Dragon Boat Festival Event and Information . This section on Dragon Boats includes:

  • Dragon Boat Calendar of Events for the US and Canada for 2008.
  • Customs, Foods, and Background on the Dragon Boat Festival
  • I am going to create a page of links for the 40 or so associations in the US.

Good books that have information about Dragon Boat racing are:
