Be part of the invasion on October12, 2024, at one of the best Dragon Boat Races in the area. We are expecting one of the largest turnouts this year with thousands of spectators and up to 40 teams competing for bragging rights as they row to the beat of drums in their Dragon Boats across the calm waters of Bayou Texar.

Northeast Pensacola SERTOMA is bringing this event back for the Tenth year to benefit our charity partners in the local Pensacola community. We are preparing for a full day of racing, food and festivities. This all-day festival is complete with Boat racing on Bayou Texar, food trucks, local artists, children’s activities, contests, music, and more.

The race serves as a great teambuilding experience for companies, organizations, krewes, non-profits, municipalities, local companies, civic organizations, rowing clubs and so many more. Bring your team to compete or sponsor by funding a team and you will leave with memories, a closer group, sore arms, and the fact that all the fun is going to support the local charities in our community. The fastest teams will have bragging rights for the year and a unique event trophy to showcase the win!
