The Huffington Post announces Ice Dragon Boat Racing is coming to Winterlude 2017 in Ottawa.  This is a first for North America and will be the largest event held in the world with 60 teams participating on February 17 & 18, 2017 at Dows Lake on the Rideau Canal Skateway.  Team registration sold out in minutes!

CEO John Brooman, of the Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival, explains that the event is only 1 1/2 to 2 years old with events held in Mongolia, China and Budapest previously.  The National Capital Commission and Heritage Canada gave approval for the event with funding from the Chinese embassy.
