Blind Dragons Get Their Eyes
Tonight in Manayunk, the Manayunk Brewery will play host to a Dragon Boat Eye-Dotting Ceremony. At 5pm, guests will hand paint the eyes onto the heads of four, currently blind, new dragon boats.
The Manayunk Dragon Boat Racing Team and the Team USA Dragon Boat Team will be launching four new 10 man boats after the ceremony. These boats will replace those lost in the September 2010 Schuylkill River flash flood.
