Dragon boats race on Bayou Desiard

Posted: Updated:
MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Instead of ski boats and party barges, self-propelled dragon boats raced across Bayou Desiard on Saturday.

Teams of 20 paddled their boats to the finish line and each boat had a drummer, in charge of the beat and morale of the team.

Prizes were given not only to race winners, but to the best dressed team, best dressed drummer and best team spirit.

This is the first year for Progressive Bank to serve as the title sponsor proceeds go to Paws of Northeast Louisiana.
