Pleasant Prairie Dragon Boat Festival

August 1, 2015

9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

A great team building activity! Calling All Teams - Illinois, Wisconsin and Beyond! Dragon Boat Racing dates back to a more than 2,300 year old tradition from Ancient China. 45’ sleek boats donned with dragon heads, tails and scales seat 20 paddlers.

A drummer sits in the bow pounding the drum to the beat of the paddlers’ stroke, and a steersperson stands in the stern guiding the team down the racecourse. Teams are forming now for the Pleasant Prairie Dragon Boat Festival.

  • Dragon boating is fun & easy… no experience necessary!
  • Form your own team with 20 friends or co-workers
  • Great for corporate team building
  • Perfect event to host your company picnic
  • Dynamic athlete’s village atmosphere
  • Awesome viewing of the races from the beautiful beach at Prairie Springs Park
