820 Clyde Fant Pkwy Shreveport
Are you ready for an event full of spirited racing on and off of the water? I am excited to announce that the first annual Sci-Port Dragon Boat Festival™ will be September 9, 2017 at Port au Prince on Cross Lake! All proceeds will benefit Sci-Port Discovery Center, providing hands-on tools for using scientific discovery in everyday life, serving to spark curiosity about the world around us, and encouraging a passion for lifelong learning for people of all ages.
What is Dragon Boat? A fun, team-building event featuring teams of 20 paddlers and a drummer competing for Dragon Boat King. In the past 10 years, dragon boating has grown from relative obscurity to 80,000 participants who take part in over 100 festivals in cities across the country. Dragon boating is visually spectacular, easy to learn, and most importantly, extremely safe!
In addition to the overall winner, prizes will be awarded for best team spirit and most creative tent.Below are the guidelines and deadlines for teams and sponsors.
