Thousands Attend Dragon Boat Race in Poughkeepsie

The Dragon Boat Race Festival took place in Poughkeepsie on Saturday and a crowd of thousands enjoyed the action from the banks of the Hudson River.

I have been to the Dragon Boat races before and this year the crowd was bigger than ever. The weather was perfect and there were lots of food trucks, beverage vendors and live music to keep everyone fed and entertained when there was a break in the action on the river.

If you have never seen a Dragon Boat race before, check out the teamwork involved in this race. Many of the people involved in the Dragon Boat races have never done this kind of thing before, but many of the boats have a combination of both rookies and veteran racers.

The Dragon Boat races have benefited Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation in the past and according to the website, this year the event helped out another local charity – Habitat for Humanity of Dutchess County.

a fund and awareness raising event for their mission of ending poverty housing and building strength, stability and self-reliance through homeownership in our community.

If you would like to get involved with Dutchess Habitat for Humanity, they are a volunteer organization with offices in Poughkeepsie. There are lots of ways to help out, even if you aren’t very good at the actual construction work. ┬áCongratulations to all involved in the Dragon Boat Festival this past weekend. It was a big success.
