London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival
The London Chinese Lions Club is once again hosting the London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival in the Royal Docks. With dragon boat racing, street food, and music, the annual event has developed into a major cultural celebration of Chinese culture, attracting up to 10,000 attendees every year. With a carnival atmosphere pervading, this year will offer traditional Chinese Lion Dancing, and comedy for all the family — as well as the thrill of competition, of course, with five different cups up for grabs.
