Join Lakehouse at the 2018 Colorado Dragon Boat Festival

This weekend marks the 18th Annual Colorado Dragon Boat Festival and we’re thrilled to sponsor a Team Lakehouse boat this year!

The Colorado Dragon Boat Festival is the largest of its kind in the nation. More than 125,000 people from all over the country descend onto Sloan’s Lake Park every year to watch and participate in 52 different races that honor the 2,000-year-old Chinese tradition of dragon boat racing.

The Team Lakehouse boat will consist of folks from NAVA Real Estate Development, project partners including Kentwood City Properties and Stantec and a few of our future homeowners. Our boat will make its grand debut in the 250 meter Flag Catching Division on Sunday, July 29th at 10:12am. The semi-final and final race times are TBD.

In addition to the races, the festival offers an amazing opportunity to see these majestic boats up close and celebrate Asian and Asian-American heritage. Throughout the weekend, guests will enjoy 100 different performances on five stages that feature traditional Asian to contemporary Asian-American culture; more than 20 food vendors in two “Taste of Asia” food courts; an Asian marketplace of gifts and artisan crafts; a beer garden; and the Dragonland interactive children’s area.

Just steps away from the festival, the Lakehouse Sales Center at 1565 Raleigh Street #108 will be open on Saturday, July 28th. Between 12:30pm and 5pm, we will be hosting the Whole Sol food truck where festival goers can enjoy tasty cold-pressed juices, smoothie bowls and other healthy treats that are all organic and gluten-free! The Sales Center will be closed on Sunday, July 29th for our big race. Come out and support Team Lakehouse!
