The 2013 Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival was held this past weekend in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, attracting thousands to Meadow Lake.

In addition to providing audiences with traditional Chinese foods and performances, the festival hosts over 120 dragon boat teams from across North America, making it one of the largest dragon boat festivals in the United States. Depending on the competitive division, teams compete for cash, trophies and other prizes.

The Festival began in 1990 with a fleet of four teak wood dragon boats and has grown to over 30 dragon boats. Many of the boats are made of fiberglass, and all the boats are approved by the International Dragon Boat Federation for international dragon boat racing.
