“Row, Row, Row, Your Dragon Boat//Gently Across Wascana Lake//Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, Merrily//Life Is But Dream”
That’s right, everyone, it’s time for one of Regina’s more popular Labour Day weekend traditions the Regina Dragon Boat Festival.
You can find out more information on the festival website, but this year’s oarfest goes Friday Sept. 4 and Saturday Sept. 5 in Wascana Centre.
There’s an opening ceremony Friday at 4:30 p.m. That’s followed by some 200 m sprint action. Then on Saturday there’s heats running between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. with some family and cultural events mixed in. And to top it all off, there’s apparently some fireworks that will be set off from Willow Island at 10 p.m. on Saturday.
