The Dragon Boats are back and racing this Saturday, April 21 at Bringle Lake near the TAMUT campus. 

Not only is this a great "family-friendly" event, you need so many people to power a Dragon boat your family has got to be there.  Teams include local businesses, groups and even regional teams racing for Texarkana bragging rights.

The Festival kicks off at 9 AM and should end around 4 PM for a full day of racing fun. So grab the kids and bring your chairs so you will get a great view.

Children's activities and live music are scheduled as well.

Proceeds benefit the Texarkana group HandsOn Texarkana. HandsOn Texarkana is about service to the community through volunteerism.
