A record 63 teams from Massachusetts, Rhode Island, South Carolina, New York and Canada competed in the 36th Boston Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival on the Charles River on June 13-14.

Officiating at the festival after taking up his post last August, Director of Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office New York (HKETONY) Steve Barclay lauded the organizers for their dedicated efforts in putting together the event, which has become the longest-running of its kind since 1979.

Aside from being the title sponsor of the festival, HKETONY also sponsored 200 new life jackets to replenish the stock.
