The Walgreens Greater New Orleans International Dragon Boat Festival returns to the Tchefuncte River in Madisonville, Louisiana on Saturday, May 13th, 2017, 9am-4pm. This event brings together culture, sport and international flavors that blend a 2,500-year-old tradition with the fun and excitement of an outdoor festival. Twenty paddlers move in unison, combining strength and teamwork in a boat whose elaborate design originates from ancient China. Social groups and businesses alike embrace the sport because it builds camaraderie, forms connections and promotes healthy lifestyles. Admission to the event is free; races will begin at 9:00am and will continue throughout the day. Festival grounds will offer a variety of activities for all participants and spectators. Wander through the Walgreens Health & Wellness Village featuring exciting products and services to assist in leading a healthy lifestyle. Grab a bite from one of our food vendors, enjoy watching live entertainment in the beer garden, or shop in the Marketplace. Families can bring their children to enjoy games and activities in the interactive Kids Zone. A portion of the proceeds of the event will be donated to Mary Bird Perkins Cancer at St. Tammany Parish Hospital. Get in on the action – ask us how to get involved!
