For the 25th year, Dragon Boats took over Wascana Lake.
The Festival was jointly started between the City Of Regina and the Regina Chinese Canadian Association.
Amber Smale, president of the Festival, says anyone can learn how to participate in the boat races.
“It’s the most inclusive activity, that I think people can get involved in,” Smale says.
“No previous skill-set required. We train everybody and it’s something that you get involved in and either you love it or you hate it. If you love it, you’re hooked and you come back year after year.”
The Festival had 30 teams participate in this year’s event
