Come for action-packed, all-day entertainment with exciting

dragon boat races, cultural performances, authentic Asian cuisine,

family-friendly activities, and the popular dumpling eating contests

Our races unique as they continue to use the fiberglass Taiwanese-style dragon boats gifted to us from the Republic of China (Taiwan) and incorporate the skill of flag-catching in each race.
