MK Dragon Boat Festival 2017
MKFM is proud to be supporting The Milton Keynes Dragon Boat Festival on Sunday 25th June 2017, organised by Gable Events in aid of Age UK Milton Keynes
The annual festival is a highlight of the Summer in Milton Keynes and has been running for 15 years at Willen Lake.
Dragon boat racing is an ancient Chinese tradition and the fastest growing water activity in Britain today - as well as the most fun! Up to 16 people paddle each 40’ boat with a drummer at the front beating time and a helm at the tail steering a straight course. No previous experience is required, just plenty of team spirit!
The Milton Keynes Dragon Boat Festival is open to everyone and the crews will battle it out over the 200m race course, watched by several thousand spectators. Willen Lake offers a superb venue for racing and a fabulous day is guaranteed with bankside entertainment, music, food and fun activities for all the family.
Check out the video here to see what you can expect...
