Off to the Races!

A summer event, the Victoria Dragon Boat Festival is filled with an exciting array of activities and events. It begins with the "Eye Dotting Ceremony," when the dragons' spirits are awakened on the night prior to the beginning of the races. Tours of Chinatown and the First Nations site are offered for those visitors who wish to do a bit of local exploration. A kids' tent keeps the little ones occupied with crafts and educational activities. Bands and musicians play throughout the night, giving you a chance to dance away your troubles. The awards ceremonies are heavily attended and exciting.
