Still trying to decide what I want to be when I grow up

Portland Rose Festival Dragon Boat Races

The Dragon Boat races are held each year, during the Rose Festival in Portland OR. I went on Sunday, June 7, 2009. It was a lot of fun to watch the rowing teams compete in the beautiful boats. Tons of people turn out for the event and to support their favorite team. For more photos check out my website: www.spidersartstudio.com


Almost 100 teams compete (including local, national, and international teams) with heats of four teams competing every nine minutes. These races are held on the Willamette River (near the Hawthorne Bridge), in boats graciously provided through the Portland-Kaohsiung Sister City Association.
