Event date change: Waterfront Market Dragon Boat Challenge reschedules event to April
Waterfront Market Dragon Boat Challenge rescheduled to the 2nd and 3rd of April
The Dragon Boat challenge hosted by premier fresh food market, the Waterfront Market – Deira is rescheduled to 2nd and 3rd of April. The challenge is rescheduled due to the national mourning period for Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
The 200-meter water races will take place in front of the Waterfront Market promenade throughout the 2-day event. The teams will be divided into four race categories: Open, Mixed, Women & Corporate. For each race category teams will compete in heats, semi-finals and then the finals.
The event will ensure COVID-19 safety measures are thoroughly implemented. Dragon Boat racing originated 2,500 years ago in China. Dragons, alongside the sun, are traditionally revered in Chinese culture and Dragon Boat racing pays homage to these ancient beliefs.
Offering an experience unlike any other in the UAE, the Waterfront Market is designed as a one-stop-shop for high-quality fresh produce – sourced locally and internationally. The market is housed within a 120,000 square meter state-of-the-art facility.
All customers and staff at the Waterfront Market have to practice social distancing, masks are compulsory whilst gloves are optional. Those who are not wearing the necessary protective gear will not be allowed to enter. Please visit www.waterfrontmarket.ae for more information.
