Last weekend, the Schuylkill River race course was packed with paddlers competing in the 5th Annual Independence Dragon Boat Regatta, hosted by the Philadelphia Dragon Boat Association. With more than 55 registered teams, it was a very busy morning!
Chevrolet was on-site by St. Joe’s Boathouse with the all-new 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible, 2011 Tahoe Hybrid, and 2011 Equinox. Several team members took a break in between their morning and afternoon races to test drive the vehicles through Fairmount Park.
One paddler called the Camaro “a dream,” while another thought the Tahoe Hybrid’s improved fuel economy was quite impressive. Check out our Flickr stream for more photos from the day!
The Dragon Boat Regatta is organized to foster enjoyment, raise funds for local charities, and field a team to the 2011 World Championship Dragon Boat Races in Tampa, Fla. For more information, please visit phillydragonboat.com/independence.
