Half Moon Dragon Boat Festival is a one-day event on the shores of Half Moon Lake in Eau Claire. Thirty teams will compete over a 250 meter course in an energized race to the finish line. The teams paddle sleek, colorful Hong Kong-style dragon boats, provided by the race. There is no charge to attend and spectators are encouraged to come and cheer on the teams. In addition to the dragon boat races, the festival will include music, activities and food.
The community’s collective paddle power will support the hospice program at Mayo Clinic Health System. The program provides whole-body care for people in the final stages of life and helps patients live each day to the fullest.
