This popular dragon boat tournament will be held on the section of the Pearl River between the North Gate of Sun Yat-sen University and Guangzhou Bridge. Both traditional and standard dragon boats will be competing for glory, and attendees can also check out a number of colorful parades. Last year, the Pearl River saw a total of 130 teams and roughly 5,000 athletes. Teams from as far afield as Iran, Canada and the UK will compete against homegrown teams for the championship title. Guangzhouers, come cheer for and support your home team – the Guangzhou Dragons.
