Twin Cities Dragon Festival 2008


Dragon Boat Racing, while traditionally a Chinese sport, has spread internationally and is an integral part of the annual Twin Cities Dragon Festival.

July 12-13, 2008, marked the 12th year of the Twin Cities Dragon Festival, the state’s largest festival celebrating Asian American culture. While the event featured various cultural performances, martial arts demonstrations, and lots of Asian cuisine, a major focus was on the Dragon Boat Races. KFAI’s Ian Yue was on the scene for the weekend event.
