Boom! Boom! Boom! and the drummer at the helm of the boat beats the drum to set the pace as up to 20 paddlers heave in time with each beat slicing their paddles into the water, propelling the 46-foot-long dragon boat towards the finish line. The atmosphere is electric. The competition is heated. The boom of the drum, the glistening lake, the yell of the steerer’s commands to the team, the cheering of the crowd, and the colorful dragon boats in fierce pursuit of the finish line are sure to provide excitement like no other event. Plus, it's all for a great cause! This is NOT your average fund raiser.
