Dragon Boat Racing

Melbourne is always full of surprises. On most weekends we can take a walk down to Federation Square and discover an event taking place. This weekend it was the turn of the Fair Trade movement.

At the Docklands, we found a series of Dragon Boat races taking place. Below are a few photos from the event and a short film. In the short time we watched it was difficult to determine what was happening and when, but those taking part looked like they were having fun.
