Dragon Boat Festival a "Great Success"
Over 10,000 people flocked to Roberts Park in Saltaire in glorious sunshine to experience and enjoy Bradford's latest Community Festival, the Bradford Lord Mayor's Appeal Dragon Boat Festival on Saturday 7th May 2016. Forty five teams from around the region came to compete in what became, the largest community Dragon Boat Festival ever held in the UK.
What an amazing event this year was! Fantastic teams, brilliant entertainment, delicious food and very kind weather and loads and loads of money raised for the charity - and we even got a chance to meet and compete with some stars! What more could anyone want!
We have to say a big thank you to all the contributors across the city who came together and helped to make it all happen and especially to Pulse Radio, Sovereign Health and Schofield Sweeney who have been major sponsors of the event. Fun, food and exercise...what could be healthier for the body and mind!
