Attracting teams from across the province, the Dragon Boat Festival is one of Lethbridge’s top events.
We headed to Henderson Lake to watch the Dragon Boat Festival. Attracting teams from across the province, this popular sporting event has its competitive side, but it’s also a chance to build community spirit and make a lot of friends. While watching teams compete on the water is the main event, there's also a lot going on giving it a fun, festive vibe: food trucks, shopping, bouncy castles, a concert and a beer garden.
Right next to Henderson Lake is Henderson Pool, providing a welcome relief from the hot summer sun. We felt like kids again as we jumped off the diving board, slid down the waterslides, and tried climbing a rock-climbing wall, which is in the pool, providing a soft landing for that eventual fall. There's also a kid's park, a big pool, green areas for picnics, and smaller slides for the young ones. With clear blue skies overhead, this place was wildly popular and is definitely a great place to go with family or friends.
