Dragon Boat Race a Great Success!


Upcoming Events

On May 30th, Fort Wayne City held its very first Dragon Boat Race on the St. Mary River. The Chinese Boat Team, led by FWCFFA, raced other 24 boats and advanced to the final races. The Association also had a vendor booth to sale dragon related Chinese art items and an area for children's activities. The night before the racing day, FWCFFA also sponsored entertainment performances to the City at Race Opening Ceremony. They performed the story of Dragon Boat Race (Qu Yuan), the boat dance, the dragon dance, the drum dance, and the lion dance (by a local group). During the performances, the Mayor Henry dotted Dragon’s eyes to “Awake The Dragon”. The performances are highly praised by the audience, the City officials and Indianapolis race participants. Through the participation, the Chinese Community has proofed its strength and passion. To all the participants and supporters, this has been an enjoyable and valuable event. Many thanks go to ALL team members, the performers, the organizers, the volunteers, the donors and the supporters! Click the link to see the pictures.
