Volunteers needed for DragonFest

Want to spend a day at the lake, meeting a fun group of people. Consider helping out with 7th annual DragonFest regatta, coming to Harrison Hot Springs on July 23.

The event will see 62 teams and more than 1,500 paddlers in Harrison for the day.

It's hosted by the Fraser Valley Dragonboat Club and Waters Edge Sport Performance. Teams will be coming in from around the Pacific Northwest. Racing begins at 8 a.m., with final races finishing up at about 5 p.m. There's live music throughout the day, as well.

Volunteers are needed the night before the regatta, to help set up fencing. Volunteers on regatta day will help with boat launching, checking wristbands and running race results.

If you are interested in helping, contact volunteer coordinator Angela at angelafarrell@gmx.com or 604-819-4539. They are looking for vendors at the regatta as well. More information at www.fraservalleydragonboatclub .com
