The Buffalo Bayou will be overflowing with people and boats at the 15th Annual Houston Dragon Boat Festival in downtown Houston.

Thirty corporate and community teams will paddle their way in the waters of downtown Houston with other festivities celebrating Asian and Asian-American culture occurring at Allen’s Landing. Corporate teams including Amegy Bank of Texas, HEB, Houston Astros, PricewaterhouseCoopers, American Express, and Silver Eagle will be guided by the beats of a drummer as they paddle traditional Hong Kong style BuK Dragon Boats in a fierce yet friendly competition.

Texas Dragon Boat Association (TDBA) is collaborating with The Asian/Pacific American Heritage Association to provide fun activities for the whole family celebrating Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month.

Performances include lion dancing, martial arts, Hawaiian style dancing, belly dancing, and many more activities bringing awareness of Asian and Asian-American culture.
