Dragon Boat Fun Begins

      Today is Friday, July 24th and the start of Dragon Boat weekend in Grand Marais.  Paddlers will be flocking to the area to participate in the event.  Today is practice day with the actual races beginning tomorrow.  Tonight will be the opening ceremony complete with dragons and dancing.

     The forecast doesn’t look perfect for the weekend but that doesn’t matter.  There’s only a 50% chance of rain and the wind isn’t predicted to blow much which is a good thing when paddling on the Big Lake, or any lake for that matter.

     If you’re in the area and looking for something to do then be sure to check out the harbor in Grand Marais.  The races are great fun to watch and even more fun to participate in just be sure to cheer for Team Gunflint.
