Peterborough's Dragon Boat Festival 2011 Is This Weekend

Little Lake and Del Crary Park will be a busy spot this weekend as Peterborough's Dragon Boat Festival gets underway, with opening ceremonies taking place Friday evening at 7 p.m. and the races getting underway first thing Saturday morning. With funds raised this year for PRHC's Breast Assessment Centre, the hope is that they will reach the $2,000,000 mark since the festival first began in 2001. Come on out and support our paddlers!  (Click here for pictures from last year's event.)
