Dozens of brightly decorated boats on the Chicago river at Ping Tom Memorial Park are chasing annually to promote literacy and other social issues. The races are also accompanied by delicious food, good music and dance.

The event is organised by the Chinatown Chamber of Commerce for more than 15 years. You can enjoy free Chinatown Trolley, fun children’s activities and the Chicago Dragons Athletic Association performance.
