NEW YORK, August 8, 2010 A dragon boat competes during the 20th annual Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival on Meadows Lake in the Flushing Meadows Corona Park, New York, the United States, on August 7, 2010.

Okay, this Saturday is my first ever dragon boat race. I’m excited and nervous (but mostly excited). I can’t wait!! Come out and see us race and enjoy the rest of the Asian Festival. I’m not sure what time my boat is racing, but our name is Splashing Tigers Soaking Dragons. I’m sure I’ll have more blog stories about the race soon!!!
