Dragon boat races will be held in Paoay Lake in April and June.

Two dragon boat races that will take place in the Paoay Lake Natural Park in Nagbacalan hamlet in April and June are now being prepared for.

Ilocos Norte sports development officer Helen Rose Domingo stated on Thursday that “as of this time, close coordination is now ongoing between the municipal government of Paoay and the Philippine Canoe Kayak Dragon Boat Federation (PCKDBF)”.

The national athletes will be traveling to Paoay Lake this year, a 387-hectare body of water 15 minutes from the Laoag International Airport and a few kilometers south of Laoag City, Ilocos Norte. The June competition has not yet had a date confirmed.

The third Paoay Dragon Boat Festival (PDBF), which will take place before the PCKDBF competition, is scheduled for April 29 and 30, 2023, the Paoay municipal administration said on Thursday.

Registration for the PDBF’s small boat and standard boat divisions is now open to all dragon boat club teams competing in the men’s and women’s divisions.

The festival, according to Mayor Shiella Galano, “aims to promote paddling to the younger generation and to let people discover the beauty of our lake as an ideal venue for water sports tourism.”

Up until the pandemic, the Paoay Lake had been developed by the government of Ilocos Norte into one of the province’s top tourist destinations and a well-liked location for national and international rowing competitions.
