Dragon boat race upcoming

Dragon boat paddlers make their way across Lake Hernando in this 2019 file photograph. The 2022 “Beast of the Southeast” dragon boat festival is set for Saturday, Nov. 5, at Lake Hernando.

Take 11 or 21 people of varying skill levels and squeeze them into a long, narrow boat.

Give one person a drum and the rest each a paddle and then give the team a name like the “Leviathans” or “We’re Not Dragon Our Tails,” put them out on a lake and you have the makings of a really fun day.
