Orlando International Dragon Boat Festival
Disney's Wide World of Sports® hosted the Orlando International Dragon Boat Festival at the WALT DISNEY WORLD® Resort, October 18th 2008.
Dragon Boat Racing is currently the world's fastest growing water sport. Dragon boat festivals bring together teams of 20 paddlers, a steersperson and a drummer who work in unison to accomplish a common goal. Embraced by social groups and businesses worldwide, the sport of dragon boating builds camaraderie, and a sense of "team" through participation in sport.

Here are some photos from the event. Certainly looks like it could be an entire day of fun and excitement!! From what I have read, the group is hoping to make this an annual event at Disney World.
