On Saturday April 30, 2011 the 3rd Annual Dragon Boat Festival was held Grand Park across from Market Commons. There were 24 boats registered to compete. There were live music bands, various vendors from local area restaurants to beautiful paintings and gorgeous jewelry. The sun was shinning and it was about 80 degrees. It was a beautiful spring day. People were walking their dogs and kids were playing on the blow up slides. As spectators watched the last race; it was very close. All four of the finalist were neck and neck at the end. After the Dragon Boat races were over they got the Jet Ski’s out with the banana boats to take the kids for a ride around the pond
After spending some time walking around and looking at all the vendors, watching the races, and soaking up the sun, we decided to walk across street to Market Commons to do a little shopping. We even stopped at one of the restaurants and sat at their outdoor seating area. The food and atmosphere was absolutely fabulous. Market Commons always has something fun going on and I never get tired of going because it is different every weekend. If you get a chance to visit and bring the family I am sure you will enjoy it. It is a great way to spend the day. I look forward to seeing you at Market Commons this summer!
