NYSE Bell Rings for Dragon Boat Festival


Director of Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in New York (HKETONY) Steve Barclay joins Chairman of Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival in New York (HKDBF-NY) Henry Wan to ring the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange on July 27 morning, ushering in the festive event to be held in Flushing Meadows Park on August 8 and 9.

The festival is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. The first HKDBF-NY was organised by the HKETONY in 1991. Since then, the festival has grown and evolved into one of the largest multi-cultural festival in the New York metropolitan area and the biggest festival of its kind in the U.S. The HKETONY is the title sponsor of this colorful festival.
