On June 23, 2018 Signature Foundation presented the 12th Annual Dragon Boat Festival! The Dragon Boat Festival is a family-friendly event where community and corporate teams race dragon boats on Creve Coeur Lake. This Festival is a wellness event that promotes an active and healthy lifestyle, teamwork, and raises money for Signature Foundation’s Operation Family Help. Operation Family Help provides financial assistance to patients and their families with medical needs not covered by health insurance.
There could not have been better weather while watching the 44 teams paddle down the Creve Coeur Lake course! This year Tarlton Construction: Paddle Like You Stole It had the fastest times and took home first place. Awards were also given out for first places in each division, best dressed drummer, empress of wellness, team spirit, and more! When people weren’t watching the teams paddle boats, they were walking around and enjoying our performances, food trucks, and kid-friendly activities like the petting zoo.
More information on sponsorships, event photos, race times, and race winners can be found on www.gatewaydragonboat.org. Next year’s Festival is scheduled for June 22, 2019 so make plans to gather a team or watch the races!
