This event officially opens the Dragon Boat season in early April. Monks conduct a formal Buddhist ceremony and bless the dragon boats. Included in the event is a traditional and colorful lion dance, the formal dotting of the eyes of the dragon boats by local dignitaries, and a parade of dragon boats with the Portland Fire Boat display in the background.
