Dragon Boats Invade Flathead Lake

Flathead Lake Dragon Boat Festival

The second annual Flathead Lake Dragon Boat Festival took place this weekend in Bigfork. Saturday’s weather was perfect, but Sunday saw some rain and cooler temps. Our day for watching the races was Saturday and we were lucky enough to get some great video. This clip shows the Glacier Bank Dragon Boat team before they lined up for the start and shows them paddling hard toward the finish line.

All the Dragon Boat teams were thrilled to participate in a fun event that benefits Save A Sister, which is a collaboration between Northwest Healthcare, North Valley Hospital and the Flathead City-County Health Department.  The Montana Dragon Boat Festival is sponsored by the Flathead Community Foundation and produced by the Kalispell Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Not just fishing – all kinds of fun!

Remember that Captain Mike’s Fish~N~Fun might be best known for offering the best fishing charter on Flathead Lake, but we also provide other fun adventures. Our Flathead Lake tours and Wild Horse Island tours are always popular and look to us for lake events such as this and other annual happenings.
