GO GIRLS!!

Townsville's Dragon Boat Ladies Competing In Florence This Weekend Facebook Rachel Foster

The Florence 2018 Festival is happening this weekend in Italy and we have local ladies there! 

Almost 130 Dragon Boat teams from 17 different countries will participate in the non-competitive event powered by breast cancer survivors teams in Florence. 

The teams will be made up of women and men breast cancer survivors who engage in Dragon Boat activities as post-operative rehabilitation.

The epicenter of the events is the Arno River as it glides right by the Cascine Park, the largest green expanse on the western corner of Florence.

The athletes’ village in the Cascine Park is closed to the general public, but all are encouraged to watch the Dragon Boat races along the Arno. 

The ladies have been making the most of the trip, taking in some great sights while in the beautiful land of Italy!
