The University of Michigan Center for Chinese Studies will kick off the ChinaNow Theme Year with the first ever university-sponsored Dragon Boat Festival from 10–5pm on September 30 at Gallup Park. The boats will be decorated to look like dragons with a fiery open-mouth head at the bow and a scaly tail at the stern. There's a full day's worth of events including Tai Chi, kite-making, yo-yo spinning, lion dancing, and a culinary taste of China.
