SHOT 7/28/2007 - Shaolin Hung Mei Kung Fu school students lead the procession to the Dotting of the Eyes ceremony at the 2007 Colorado Dragon Boat Festival. Noonan and eight other students manned the dragon which was used as part of the Opening Ceremonies. The sport of Dragon boat racing is over 2000 years old and features teams of 18 paddlers - nine men and nine women plus someone to steer the boat all rowing to the beat of a drum and racing to a flag either 200 or 300 meters away on Sloan's Lake in Denver, Co. Founded in 2001 to celebrate Denver?s rich Asian Pacific American culture, the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival has become the region?s fastest growing and most acclaimed new festival. Festival-goers get to explore the Asian culture through demonstrations, crafts, shopping, eating, and the growing sport of dragon boat racing. .(Photo by Marc Piscotty / © 2007)
