Read about New England Fall Events' visit to the Dragon Boat Festival - includes planning and family tips!

The event consists of dragon boat races for professional and amateur teams, along with many cultural and artistic events aimed at adults and children.

Cultural music and dance performances beneath our large tent
Arts & crafts

With the emphasis on competition and fun, the event makes an entertaining day for participants and the entire family!
