Watch Dragons Soar Across the Banana River at the Walgreen’s Space Coast Dragon Boat Festival

Have you ever seen a dragon fly across the Banana River? Here’s your opportunity. The 5th Annual Walgreen’s Space Coast Dragon Boat Festival presented by PepsiCo will be at Manatee Sanctuary Park on April 8.

Teams of twenty paddlers move in unison to move their dragon boat forward, combining strength and teamwork. Dragon Boats are long, elaborate watercrafts originating in China. This festival brings sport, culture, and international flavors together to celebrate a 2,500-year-old tradition.
