  3. Ottawa Dragon Boat Race Festival


This Chinese cultural festival, which began in 1993 as a half-day event, is now a two day affair in June each year. Around 4,500 paddlers compete against each other in dragon boat races at Mooney's Bay Park, attracting around 6,00,000 spectators. The rowers re-enact the attempts of fishermen to save Qu Yuan, a poet and minister of the Chou Dynasty, from drowning in a river. For sponsorship, registration, updated schedules and volunteering opportunities check the Web site.
