Saturday, June 11 saw the opening ceremonies for the Festival. The Taoist Society of Canada was there in their full regalia to do the blessing ceremony for the new boats that the society was able to get. Local artists were commissioned to design and decorate a number of these boats. They are, indeed, works of art.
The ceremony was well attended by local dignitaries, dragon boaters and local residents. I am so looking forward to seeing these boats in action as well as watching and listening to a fantastic lineup of performers. Hope to see you there.
