My arms hurt just watching them. You’re used to Dragon Boats at Mooney’s Bay in the summer but this year Ottawa will be hosting a brand new festival at Dow’s Lake, on solid ice.
Organizers of the Ottawa Ice Dragon Boat Festival opened a second block to meet demand, after the first round of registration sold out in just 10 minutes.
It’s the first event of its kind in North America, and has drawn athletes to register from as far as California and Florida. So cool!
The races are scheduled for February 17 and 18 at Dow’s Lake.
