The 2013 Downham Market Water Festival and Dragon Boat Race will take place on Sunday 11th August from 10am-4pm.
And, as in previous years, the Water Festival is looking for teams to compete in the infamous Dragon Boat Race on the Great Ouse Relief Channel.
Once again a host of local businesses and organisations (many in fancy-dress!) will take to the waters around Hythe Bridge competing to see who will become the Downham Market Dragon Boat Champions.
The festival, now in its 7th year, includes plenty of shore-side entertainment too; as well as cheering on the teams spectators can enjoy a funfair, face painting and various stalls.
If you are willing to help with the event set-up, pack-up or as a volunteer marshal please get in contact.
How To Enter a Team
This year, the maximum number of team slots available will be 28. These will be sold on a first come first served basis. Teams can be made up of 10 paddlers and 1 drummer.
Team entry costs £160. No experience is necessary as a full briefing will be given on the day. The only requirement is that each team member must be able to swim.
