You're Invited: 2012 Dragon Festival!
My Dragon Boat Race team won the Champion Trophy in the Purple Division in 2006 and, fully appreciating knowing when to quit, I promptly retired from the sport thereafter. Even still, Minnesota's largest pan-Asian Pacific Islander community event, the Dragon Festival, is worth returning to again and again. With cultural heritage events and cuisine representing the broad swath of Asian communities in our state, it's both educational and delicious. In this year of the Dragon, be sure to check out the arts and crafts, martial arts demonstrations, and of course, the Dragon Boat races!
