A persistent, gusty wind knocked a few of the watercraft off course as they attempted to line up, but it was otherwise a beautiful Saturday for the Rotary Club of Stratford’s Dragon Boat Festival.

Over 40 teams were in the Festival City competing in the 24th annual event, which serves as a fundraiser for the local club and the hospice. Races began around 8 a.m. and continued for most of the day.
