When: Sat., May 14, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. 2016
Teams glide across Lake Norman, racing throughout the day for the sought-after champion title. The day is packed with cultural performances — countries like Vietnam, Burma and more are represented — and authentic cuisine. Stick it out for the last race. It’s the regatta you’ve always wanted to attend, but with cooler boats and more culture than you could imagine. For more information, visit www.charlottedragonboat.com.
