The Southeast Tourism Society has named the Owensboro Dragon Boat Festival as one of the Top 20 Events for the month of August. The Owensboro Daviess County Convention & Visitors Bureau submits events quarterly for consideration to become a Top 20 Event. Through a nomination process, Southeast Tourism Society chooses the Top 20 events in the Southeast for each month of the year and publishes this list of winners quarterly. The exciting races feature two teams of 20, rowing against each other in 100-meter heats down the Ohio River. The free event also features food vendors, kids’ activities and live entertainment. The 4th annual Dragon Boat Festival is scheduled for August 23, 2014.
