The Second Annual Dragon Boat Festival is set for this Saturday, April 5th from 9am-6pm in historic downtown New Iberia.

You will be able to watch 26 traditional Hong Kong style dragon boats race down the Bayou Teche as well as enjoy music, food and other family activities throughout the day.

“The festival is a family fun and team oriented festival aimed to bring out the competitive kid in everyone,” said Wess Robinson, president of Iberia On Tap, the organization hosting the event. ”From the costumes, the chants, the races, the dance offs and, of course, the incredible South Louisiana food, the Acadiana Dragon Boat Festival has something for everyone.”

This year the festival will have two new events: Burger Cook-Off Competition and the Kids Zone, which will include a fun jump, New Heights Gym kids gymnastics and various kids activities.
