Description
The Austin Dragon Boat Festival is an annual event.

The Dragon Boat Festival has been an ongoing annual event in Austin since 1999. This is its 18th year in the running with growing participation and attendance. This year's event is special as this is the Chinese Year of the Ram! We anticipate to have 40 dragonboat teams (10+ from around the continent).

This event is free to the public and will feature the following attractions:

* Dragon boat races
* Taiko drums
* Lion/Dragon dance
* Japanese, Chinese and Hawaiian dances
* Martial arts demonstrations
* A variety of games and Asian foods
* Demonstrations by Austin-Travis County EMS and Fire and APD
* Various Vendors
* Moon Walk
* Face painting

We will need volunteers to coordinate a few of the above events as well as the race itself. The race is probably the coolest part of the day. We will need volunteers to coordinate with the Dragonboat teams, make announcements, work with equipment to time the races and much much more.

Looking forward to an awesome 2017 Race!
