Ottawa Sun: Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival still has room - for racers, helpers
Tuesday, May 26, 2015
The Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival expects 75,000 fun-lovers pack Mooney's Bay from June 25-28.
With that growth comes the need for volunteers; and the event is actually still looking for more competitors as well.
The weekend event, the largest dragon boat festival in North America, also has an amazing free concert series, including Yukon Blonde, Hey Rosetta!, Dan Mangan + Blacksmith, Hollerado, Tokyo Police Club, Rural Alberta Advantage and The Mounties. Along with the music, there's a children's area and plenty of artisans and exhibitors.
