2nd Annual Dragon Boat Festival


If you missed the 2nd annual Lake James Dragonboat Festival, Sept. 30, do yourself a favor and mark your calendar now for 2018. This year 14 teams participated in the event, hosted by the Lake James Healing Dragons club. Hundreds of spectators lined the beach at the Paddy’s Creek Area to cheer each of the 20-person teams to the finish line. The big winners were those who will benefit from the proceeds, which were donated to the patient services program at Blue Ridge Cancer Center.
