GWN Dragon Boat is excited to host its first annual Northern Nevada
International Dragon Boat Festival at Sparks Marina Park in Sparks, Nevada on Saturday,
August 19th, 2017.  This event
brings together culture, sport and international flavors that blend a
2,500-year-old tradition with the fun and excitement of an outdoor festival.

Twenty paddlers move in unison, combining strength and teamwork in a
boat whose elaborate design originates from ancient China. Social groups and
businesses alike embrace the sport because it builds camaraderie, forms
connections and promotes healthy lifestyles.

Admission to the event is free; races will begin at 9:00am and will
continue throughout the day. Festival grounds will offer a variety of
activities for all participants and spectators. Wander through the Health &
Wellness Village featuring exciting products and services to assist in leading
a healthy lifestyle. Grab a bite from one of our Food Trucks, enjoy a cold
beverage in the Beer Garden, or shop in the Marketplace. Families can bring
their children to enjoy games and activities in the interactive Kids Zone. A
portion of the proceeds of the event will be donated to Immunize Nevada.

New teams and individuals are welcome! Invite friends, family,
colleagues - form a group of 17-21 people and sign-up a team today. If you or a
couple of friends are interested, there is a pay per seat option available,
contact us at info@gwndragonboat.com to join.
