Crowds from all over descended upon Meadow Lake last weekend for the 29th Annual Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival. They caught races, listened to a diverse roster of musical talent, ate delicious food and enjoyed everything else the event offered.

In the top row, from left, is a performer in one of the concerts and a group of boats.

In the second row, children play; festival PR and marketing director David Archer dots the dragon’s eye, marking the official kickoff of the competition; and the dragon dancing team leads the racers to the main stage.

Above, teams in an early race move around, while cars move on the Grand Central Parkway by the western edge of the lake.

On the right, clockwise from upper left, are a vendor at the festival, a dancer and the HSBC team, showing some enthusiasm during Saturday’s opening ceremonies.
