Atlanta Dragon Boat Festival set for Sept. 12
Team Accenture makes its way back to the dock following an early morning race at the Lake Lanier Olympic Center during last year’s Atlanta Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival.
Athletes armed with paddles and positioned inside a brightly painted boat with a dragon face on the bow rip through the water with ease. The men and women race toward the shore lined with cheering crowds and musicians playing an ancient melody of the Chinese culture. One would only expect to find such sights in the Far East.
