Dragons are coming! the City of Montgomery is gearing up for Alabama's first ever Dragon Boat Race and Festival.
Dragon boats are about 40-feet long. They carry 20 paddlers plus a drummer and a helmsman.
Mark your calendar. August 28th, the dragon boats will be provided, so will some training, for teams to take part in three races and benefit two local charities - Bridge Builders and Rebuilding Together.
It's not just a race, it's a festival. Organizers say there will be several exhibitors set up along the riverwalk with inflatables for children and food and drinks.
