London Hong Kong Dragon Boat FestivalIn 2019, the London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival celebrates its 24th year, returning to the London Regatta Centre at the later date of Sunday 30th June. This year's edition sees 40 teams given a turn in the dragon boats - human-powered paddled watercraft, typically manned by 17 people, 16 of which are equipped with small paddles and the 17th beating a drum - as they battle it out for one of six cups. Out of the water, there's traditional Chinese lion dancing, live music, martial arts displays, and a South East Asia food festival making this a free, family-friendly, fun day out for both participants and spectators.
