The Greater New Orleans International Dragon Boat Festival returns to the Tchefuncte River . Dragon Boat racing is a water sport that started as a folk tradition in China over 2000 years ago. Over the past 25 years it has spread beyond Asia to Europe, North America, Australia and Africa , to become an international sport with a huge following. Dragon boat racing involves having 2 or more boats racing from 'point A' to 'point B' in a straight line. The boat will be 40 feet in length holding 20 paddlers, including a drummer and a steersperson. The races will be 250 meters, 500 meters, and/or 1200 meters!
