Boston Dragon Boat Festival a roaring success

Attending her first Boston Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival since assuming her post last August, HKETONY Director Joanne Chu thanked the organizers for their dedicated efforts and congratulated them for a successful event. A record 74 teams battled head-to-head on the Charles River at the HKETONY-sponsored races in Boston (Jun 9-10). It was fun and games at the Hong Kong festival booth, with a group of enthusiastic volunteers, who made sure spectators and visitors to the festival took home souvenirs. Next up is the Chicago Dragon Boat Festival on June 23.
