The Junior League of Tuscaloosa presents the Tuscaloosa Dragon Boat Races 2014, this Saturday! The third annual event will take place at Cypress Inn on the Black Warrior River. Races start around 10:30 in the morning and run through the afternoon.

Come watch Hong Kong style dragon boats which are 46-feet long, with 10 seats and 20 people. Paddlers rave about the excitement, friendly competition and community spirit surrounding the sport. All ages, skill levels and physiques perfect their stroke and timing for the ultimate teamwork experience!

Also, more fun for the little ones with the Nucor Steel Kids Area! There will be face painting, dragon crafts, and a bouncy house! Kids will need a wristband to play in the area, but the wristband is free! So bring the whole Fam Jam and join us THIS SATURDAY!!! Paddles Up!

The Dragon Boat Races help fund Junior League of Tuscaloosa’s work in the community. Junior League
President Niccole Poole says, “Our organization is different than others because we match our money
with manpower. We multiply the impact of our dollars by coupling them with thousands of volunteer hours
donated annually by our more than 150 active members.”

This event is ultimate fun combined with an unforgettable fundraising experience.
