    Re: Dragon Boat Races

    Likely because Chinese people immigrated to the US and brought a piece of tradition with them? IDK I'm not an expert. I just like watching.

    I always thought it would be awesome to get involved in this. There is a team here in Adelaide and a co-worker of mine does this with her partner.

    Dragon boat racing actually originated in China, though I think we can all appreciate how it might seem to be a Northern European thing!

    Re: Dragon Boat Races

    In Bath, Michigan, there is an annual bathtub race, and here in Alpena, we have a rubber ducky race on the Thunder Bay River. Does anybody know where the roots of these races are?
