Each year, Tampa hosts the Dragon Boat Races. The annual festival raises thousands of dollars for local charities and has over 70 teams that compete in the competition. This year, one of my friends and co-workers signed up to participate on a team. A few of us from work went downtown for lunch at Jackson's Bistro and then decided that we would spend the rest of the afternoon watching the races.
The event was full of excitement and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the large boats race down the water. While we sort of stumbled upon the event this year, I look forward to heading down to the water again next year for the festivities.
