PushingPushing Pushing thethe the boat out Get set to get wet at Dragon Boat Festival!
HUNDREDS of people will be taking to the water at the 12th spectacular Peterborough Dragon Boat Festival this weekend.
More than 600 men and women will be amongst the 36 crews racing the 40ft brightly painted Chinese dragon boats along the River Nene course.
As well as races every 10 minutes throughout the day (between 10am and 5pm on Sunday) there will be a whole host of family activities on the bank to keep teams and spectators entertained.
This includes a large funfair, fun inflatables, kids quads, face painting, a mobile climbing wall, Chinese lion dancing and street entertainment from Dan the Hat, plus a Battle of Britain flypast by a Second World War Dakota aeroplane.
At the end of the day, trophies will be presented to the winning crew, the second and third placed crews, the team that raises the most money for charity, the top mixed crew and the ‘best dressed’ crew.
