Nuba Proudly Supports the Dragon Boat Festival Society

 Let the races begin! Recognized as North America’s biggest and best, the annual Rio Tinto Alcan Dragon Boat Festival in Vancouver is a true celebration of our diverse and beautiful city, attracting over 100,000 people and close to 180 dragon boat teams from across the Lower Mainland and around the globe.   The Dragon Boat Festival Gala is happening on Thursday, June 19. And all proceeds from the evening go towards the Milton K Wong Legacy Project. Then after the gala it's time for the races!   Beginning on Friday, June 20 with the colourful Eye-dotting Ceremony, the festival continues with two more days of non-stop entertainment on the World Beat Stage, fabulous food and shopping, and of course, dragon boat racing of the highest caliber.
