To commemorate Chinese culture and history, the Dragon Boat Festival and Chinese New Year celebrations will be the prime events to be celebrated each year in the North West.
Last year's 2012 UK Chinese Dragon Boat Festival Celebration was a great success and attracted 15 Dragon Boat teams and a modest crowd of lively supporters and spectators.
This yearâs event is destined to attract twice as many Dragon Boat teams from local communities, universities, corporates, and charity fund-raisers all competing for this yearâs winning trophy.
Like last year, there will be a showcase of high-quality traditional Chinese cultural attractions, such as traditional lion dances, folk dances, music, songs and Chinese calligraphy and a bite of traditional Dragon Boat Festival food like Zongzi (Glutinous rice dumplings)
The Dragon Boat Festival will take place on 16 June 2013 and will start at 11:00
