Dragon Festival 2012, Lake Carolyn

We went to the Dragon Boat, Kite and Lantern Festival by Lake Carolyn on Sunday afternoon. As the name suggests, the festival included kite flying lovely lanterns swaying gently in the afternoon breeze, a short boat race and carnival type food vendors.

It was sweltering except for the shade provided by the trees. We bought a couple of these cute looking Japanese/Chinese umbrellas to keep the sun rays away. Loved the painted cherry blossoms. The inside of the umbrella looked hand made. Not bad for 5 bucks.


The vendor used Black & Decker to cut the potatoes into a spiral to make the curly fries. Another usual suspect in any Southern carnival. Chow mein, shaved ice, kulfi and old-fashioned pop were also served. we watched the final boat race, short but sweet. We cheered for the local Fire Fighter's team to win.
