Pensacola Dragon Boat Festival


Led by the rhythmic beat of a drum, teams of 20 synchronized paddlers, one drummer and one steersperson race 300 meters across Bayou Texar in 40-foot canoes rigged with decorative Chinese dragon heads and tails. The sport brings social groups and businesses alike down to the water to bond and compete, building a stronger sense of “team” with every stroke. From vets to newbies, anyone can have a good time – they’ve made sure there’s plenty of time to kick back (or thrown down!) between races.

This “one-stop” concept greatly reduces the trauma children experience and leads to better case outcomes. In 2016, GCKH provided services to over 3,600 child victims of abuse and neglect.
