Over the past few years, dragon boat racing has become a popular sport in Tennessee. In many of the top waterfront retirement communities, this 2000 year old Chinese pastime is a great way to have fun and compete. Just as in ancient China, modern “villagers” gather every year in ornate wooden boats to see which boat has the best showing of teamwork, strength and speed. On these special days, there is usually food, music, lots of good people, and plenty of other fun treats.
