Dragon Boat Festival

I, Zeb the Duck, Soapy Smith Duck and our moms went to Colorado’s 14th annual Dragon Boat Festival at Sloan’s Lake Park in Denver.

Dragon boats!

We had so much fun!

There were 3 stages with live entertainment.  First we saw Saving Avery perform on the Band Stage.

Then we headed to Sloan’s Lake to watch the dragon boats.  This is where the teams must register for their race.

There were dragon boat races all day Saturday and all day Sunday.  As ducks, we love water activities.

We watched the popular group, Hype 303 on the main stage.
