Dragon Boat Festival

DSCN5576

Over the summer there are a couple different Dragon Boat races. The one I attended was held in Arlington Heights at Lake Arlington and sponsored by Walgreens and Pepsi. My aunt, cousin and I went over and wandered around, past all the tents filled with teams and then to look around the vendors. There was a stage with lion dances,

dancing, and a surprise performance from the Cirque du Shanghai. (surprise because it wasn’t on the list online, so it was a surprise to us)

It was a hot day so we didn’t stay for super long but we did get to see several different races.
