Chicago Southland Dragon Boat Festival

On June 3rd, members of The Burke Group teamed with staff from the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) for the second consecutive year to participate in the Chicago Southland Dragon Boat Festival on the Cal-Sag Channel.  The event took place in Blue Island adjacent to the MWRD SEPA Waterfall & Park. The sport stems from an ancient Chinese legend. Dragon boats are thus named because the fore and stern of the boat is in a shape of a traditional Chinese dragon. One team member sits at the front of the boat beating a drum to maintain morale and ensure that the rowers keep in time with one another. The team paddled the 42-foot boat into 4th place. There were 14 teams that competed.

CBBEL is Pleased to Welcome…
