Walgreens Orlando International Dragon Boat Festival At Downtown Disney

The Walgreens Orlando International Dragon Boat Festival pays homage to the traditional water-sport festivals which originated with the Ancient Chinese. In Chinese custom, a dragon represents wisdom and is a powerful symbol of spring rain and growth. Disney World created this fun event in 2008 to inspire guests to refresh their mind and body in both amusement and health. Recently this event was honored with the "Best Single Sport Event Award" at the SportsTravel Awards.
