The Dragon Boat tradition, which originated in China over 2000 years ago, is now going global and full of vigor today. Spectacular for both participants and spectators alike, the Dragon Boat race is a much loved cultural and sport event that reflects the spirit of competitiveness, inclusiveness, sportsmanship and team work.
The Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival is the largest dragon boating event in North America contributing significantly to the economic, cultural and social development of Canada's capital region. The Embassy of the People's Republic of China in Canada is delighted to see the dragon boat tradition has become a vibrant part of Canada's multicultural celebration and is very happy to support the Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival.
Best wishes to this magnificent event !
