For 17 years, the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival — the largest of its kind in the nation — has been a source of pride and cultural preservation for thousands of Asians across the Rocky Mountain region. Motel6 recently named the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival one of the top six quirkiest summer festivals in the United States. Organizers expect more than , people to attend the festival , which will feature nearly 80 vendors and organizations, 27 Taste of Asia food options, and live performances on five themed stages, from magic to music to martial arts. Forty teams will compete in the namesake activity, dragon boat racing, a 2,year-old traditional Chinese paddling sport that combines art and athleticism. The sport has two basic divisions: Taiwan-style, or flag-catching; and Hong Kong-style, or competitive racing, which uses lower and faster vessels without flag catchers straddling the boat head.
