The Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival is an annual fundraising event organized by the Superior Rotary Club and Duluth’s Harbortown Rotary Club. The race is held in the Superior Bay off Barker’s Island. This includes a traditional dragon boat race, as well as other exciting and entertaining festivities.
There are approximately 80-100 teams that participate in the races on Saturday. Each boat consists of 22 paddlers, 1 drummer, and a steersperson.
Pledges are taken and all monies raised go toward different charities.
