Congratulations to team Boston Kwong Kow for placing #1 in 2019 Boston Dragon Boat Festival’s Community Specialty Races!
The team ranked #23 out of 75 teams this year, competing against club teams! Special thanks to the Festival organizers for the coaching and their support for our team!
This is team Boston Kwong Kow’s sixth attendance at the annual Boston Dragon Boat Festival. The team is made up of current and former Kwong Kow staff members, friends and family. The team is proud to represent Kwong Kow Chinese School through this amazing cultural activity.
The Boston Dragon Boat Festival celebrates a traditional holiday originating in China, occurring near the summer solstice. One notable part of celebrating Dragon Boat Festival is making and eating zongzi (sticky rice with various fillings wrapped in lotus leaves).
