Inspired by the Rubbish Duck (www.rubbishduck.com) and Dragon Boat Festivals around the world, this concept looks to encourage local neighbourhood teams to use rubbish from their local areas to make & race their own dragon boat in a festival setting.
A weekend long city-wide scrapheap dragon boat festival!
Local neighbourhood teams clean up their local areas in search of rubbish and scrapheap materials to build their own floating dragon boat.
Each team then participates in a series of round-robin races to determine the winner. Various prizes: Fastest boat; best looking boat; most creative boat; best use of materials boat; best clean-up team; etc.
