Rio Tinto Alcan Dragon Boat Festival (June 15-17)
Rio Tinto Alcan Dragon Boat Festival is happening in Vancouver this weekend, from June 15 to 17th. Head on down to False Creek and watch dragon boat racing - they are quite exciting! There will also be displays and activities going on around the area so it's fun for the whole family. Food vendors and a beer garden will be on site, so grab a lunch while you're there. One of my favorite events during the Dragon Boat Festival is watching the cooking competition. Culinary Arts students participate in a cooking competition, somehow using Alcan aluminum foil in at least one step of cooking the food. Hopefully the weather holds up over the weekend! Admission to the event is free.
