Baltimore Dragon Boat Challenge

For the 11th year running, the Baltimore Dragon Boat Club hosts a flotilla of more than 20 colorful paddle-propelled craft, powered by teams from Annapolis; Philadelphia; Pittsburgh; Charlotte, N.C.; New York City; and Washington (and Baltimore, of course). The competition features 500-meter heats, with winners advancing through elimination rounds to the finals. The whole scene looks pretty exotic, not the sort of thing you see in the harbor every day. 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 22 (rain date June 23) along the waterfront promenade at Under Armour Headquarters, 1010 Hull St. in Locust Point. Free.
