Will Your Dad enjoy Father's Day with a Dragon Boat Race Festival?

The word father in Chinese "ba ba" sounds like 8. Thus, Baba Day, or Father's Day is celebrated on the eighth day of the eight month.

Those in the Tacoma, Washington area may like to hang out with Dad on his special day by participating in the Dragon Boat Festival of the Asian American Dragon Boat Association (AADBA).

AADBA is holding their annual Dragon Boat Festival entitled "International Bon Om Tuk Festival," on August 8, 2009 at Thea's Park in Dock Street, Tacoma. Have dad drive the family (hee hee) and let him enjoy the day with watching the dragon boat races. There will also be lots of ethnic food, cultural performances and arts and crafts.

So go. Let the little ones wear their cheung sam-qi pao , bring them over to Thea's Park, and have fun on Chinese Father's Day. :-)

PS. Thank you Chanda for the heads-up.
