Toromont CAT Dragon Boat Festival
The 12th Annual Toromont CAT Dragon Boat Festival in support of United Way Toronto & York Region takes place on Saturday, August 15, 2015.
The Toromont CAT Dragon Boat Festival in support of United Way brings hundreds of paddlers together in a friendly racing competition while enjoying York Region’s beautiful outdoors at Seneca College, King Campus.
This is a family summer event that can’t be missed, and proceeds are providing a United Way helping hand in every neighbourhood – so that everyone can access social supports where and when they need them, close to home. When you come out and paddle, you are supporting programs for the elderly, newcomers, youth, and individuals with developmental disabilities, among others.
A team-building event like no other, competitors learn about this ancient, 20 centuries old tradition of Dragon Boat paddling – a sport that requires precision, discipline and determination!

About Dragon Boat:
Dragon boat racing is a Chinese tradition that dates back more than 2000 years. The world’s largest flat water racing watercrafts, dragon boats are typically decorated to resemble a dragon and are propelled by 20 paddlers; a drummer and a steersperson energize and give direction to the team. In dragon boating, strength and teamwork determine success.
