If you live in an apartment in Ridgeland, SC you can be part of a first time ever event in Beaufort. DragonBoat Race Day at the Beaufort Water Festival is this Saturday, June 20th, from noon to 5pm. Head to the Beaufort Water Festival for South Carolina's first-ever DragonBoat Festival featuring a field of 24 paddle-crazy teams in contention for gold and glory, right downtown at the Beaufort River's Waterfront Park!
Waterfront Park will be festooned with the contenders' tents. During the afternoon, each team will compete in four-boat heats and spectators and participants are encouraged to wear their wildest dragon-ish costumes to get in the Festival spirit. This event is the newest addition to the list of Water Festival activities this year.
Dragonboating is an international phenomenon, the world's fastest growing water sport, and Beaufort is thrilled to stage its very first event. DragonBoat Beaufort, the town year old cancer survior team, is the host and the beneficiary of the event's proceeds. The touching cancer carnation ceremony will be held during the event. Be there when dragons invade Beaufort. Paddles up!
