Salford Dragon Boat Festival

Today three pictures I captured at the Salford Dragon Boat Festival which provided a beautiful backdrop to our Meeting with Bev, Len and Claude on 2nd June, 2019.
In addition to the dragon boat races, there was also an additional program with Chinese song, dance and martial arts demonstrations.
A number of attractive ladies in beautiful Chinese robes were happy to pose for my camera!

The Salford Dragon Boat Festival is a fundraising project of the Xinhua Chinese Association (XCA).
The XCA strives to promote Chinese culture in the UK and provides a platform for Chinese people to have their voices heard and to get involved in many main stream social activities. Over the past years, XCA has organized all sorts of social and cultural activities and events for its members and the general public. The UK Chinese Dragon Boat Festival is one of the most high-profile events organized by XCA.

This year the Salford Dragon Boat Festival is scheduled for Sunday 5th July and has not yet been cancelled up till now, but I would be surprised if the festival can take place on this date.
