Dragon Boat Festival pictures


The Dragon Boat Racing Festival in Saltaire's Roberts Park has become an annual fixture. This year, the fourth time it has been held, was bigger and better than ever, taking place over three days. Teams from schools, businesses and other groups and organisations were competing to raise money for the Lord Mayor's charity appeal and for many other charities. 

The park had a base camp for the teams and lots of food stalls, as well as activities for children, music, a market and a funfair. There was a good atmosphere, with large screens showing the races, since there is not a lot of room for spectators on the river bank.
