The flowing festival was held yesterday at Banjo Patterson park and was deemed a success by organisers.

The park seemed to transform overnight as market stalls, live entertainment, food stalls and rides lined the green.

Races kicked in the early morning with adrenaline charged 200m sprints on the lake.

In the mixed masters heat 1 the ice dragons crossed the line first with a time of 57.50 seconds followed closely by Merimbula with a time of 58.33. Coming in third with another close time was Illawarra with 58.62 seconds.

Dragon boat racing is an exciting and competitive water sport which has rapidly grown in popularity as a relatively new sport in Australia. The forty foot long dragon boats are brightly painted and decorated with a dragons head and tail.
