Partners in Education is in our 16th year of hosting the dragon boat festival here in Toledo, OH! The Dragon Boat Summer Learning Festival will be held on Saturday, July 22, 2017. The Festival will serve as a showcase of summer learning programs. The Dragon Boat Summer Learning Festival is our signature event and allows us to raise money to help us fulfill our mission "to support students success through community engagement."
This event is about learning, culture, fun, families,fitness, teamwork and team-building. The Dragon Boat races themselves are great for corporate, business, church, civic, and school groups. The races pit competing businesses against one another for special trophies. Each team participates in three races during this unique one-day event. The course begins across from the Owens Corning World Headquarters building in front of the Docks restaurants and races to the finish line near the lagoon at International Park. Dragon Boat races began in China over 2,500 years ago. At these races, we celebrate and honor the Chinese heritage of this event.
