May 4 | Allen's Landing
No, you will not see a Houstonia team rowing down Buffalo Bayou in this weekend's dragon boat festival, but that's no reason to miss the annual celebration of Asian culture. Organizers provide the Hong Kong style BuK Dragon Boats; competitors race to the finish. The only real loser is anyone who touches the water.
