Join over 7,000 visitors at Paducah’s annual Dragon Boat Festival and cheer on teams as they pilot colorful, elaborately designed dragon boats – 41-foot-long boats, each carrying up to 16 paddlers and a drummer – in races along the Ohio River.

 The Chinese history of “dragon boats” dates back more than 2,000 years, but this modern event is held as a fundraiser for Paducah’s River Discovery Center, which is dedicated to preserving the history and heritage of America’s river systems.
