The 2018 Chautauqua Lake Dragon Boat Race is an exciting event that brings a unique opportunity for your business or organization to get involved in a fun team building athletic competition that benefits the local Lake.

The Dragon Boat Race is the only event of its kind offered in the surrounding area!

Last year’s event was an overwhelming success, almost doubling the number of participating teams from the inaugural race in 2016. Nearly 30 boats comprised of teams from local sponsors, community groups and several experienced clubs from Pittsburgh, Ithaca and Buffalo competed.

Hundreds of people gathered at Lucille Ball Memorial Park in Celoron for the race participants, as friends and family shared in a fun-filled afternoon of friendly competition.

 “CHQ Dragon Boat Race has something for everyone whether you are a race participant or community spectator. This event is a great opportunity for the whole community to come together, bring awareness to and raise funds to benefit the lake.”- Heather Nolan, co-chair of the planning committee

Don’t miss your chance to get in on the fun this year! The third annual CHQ Dragon Boat Race is scheduled for August 11, 2018!
