The Hong Kong Dragon Boat Association and the Hong Kong Tourism Board have come together to organise the 'Hong Kong Dragon Boat Carnival' which will be held from the 23rd to 25th of July at East Tsim Sha Tsui, with a total of 191 local and foreign competing teams, including a team consisting of popular artistes from Korea, such as Super Junior, 2PM and U-Kiss.
The tourism board expressed that this time round, they received HKD15,000,000 of sponsorships and they estimated that the 3-day event will attract up to 50,000 spectators, including 8000 tourists. The competition is of a larger scale this time, with a total of 12 countries and 191 teams in the competition, which is almost double of last year. There will also be more creative activities, including a bathtub race, a race organised for breast cancer survivors - 'Pink invitational dragon boat race' and a 'Big dragon boat race' where each team has 50 or more members etc.
However, the most attractive would be the invitational race consisting of teams from various international broadcasting stations. One of the participants would be from Korea's KBS Dream Team. For now, participating members include 2PM's Junho, U-Kiss' Alexander and other Super Junior members.
