Early registration discount still available for dragon boat festival


The Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival has extended the early registration discount. Teams that register before April 30 will receive $50 off of their team entry fee.

The festival is the largest of its kind in the U.S. It is an annual fundraising event organized by the Superior Rotary Club and Harbortown Rotary Club of Duluth.

The race will be held on Aug. 22 and 23 in Superior Bay off Barker's Island and includes a traditional dragon boat race as well as music, food and beverage vendors and other entertainment.

Last year, the festival raised more than $100,000 for local charities and the SMDC Breast Program. To date, the festival has raised more than $600,000 all of which has been donated back into the Duluth/Superior communities.
