About three more months until the Capital City Dragon Boat Race returns to the banks of the Grand River and brings excitement to Downtown Lansing on Labor Day Weekend again. The teams of 20-25 paddlers will race 40-foot long, ‘flag-catcher’ style Dragon Boats for 300 meters north into Adado Riverfront Park from the Lansing City Market. Spectators will have opportunity to watch the race from either side of the river or the Shiawassee St. Bridge.
“Teams have been forming and community excitement is building. We look forward to the continued growth of Capital City Dragon Boat Race to become one of the premier dragon boat races in the Midwest,” says Mike Price, Executive Director of the Greater Lansing Sports Authority.
