If each year on Father’s Day you find it harder to find a gift that is a little different from the usual socks, alcohol or slippers, you will be happy to find out that the Milton Keynes Dragon Boat Festival falls on the same day. What an exciting and alternative day out to gift your father.
The Chinese tradition of Dragon Boat racing is becoming the fastest growing water activity in the UK and definitely one of the most fun. Teams of 16 highly competitive people in a 40 ft. long boat will be competing whilst helping raise money for charity. For the past 14 years up to 60 crews have taken on the 200m course at Willen Lake. With spectator figures having risen to several thousand, it is now the largest one-day charity dragon boat event in the country; proving how popular the day is. There will also be entertainment along the banks, refreshments, music, mini golf, funfair rides and inflatables – a great day out for all the family.
After all the races have been competed, join us at the Bull Hotel for Sunday lunch where the Nigel Fox Trio will be playing well known live jazz for your entertainment. A memory that your loved one will remember for a long time, priceless!
