Last August 2016, Manila Dragons Dragonboat Rowing Team set out to Legazpi City to participate in the annual Ibalong Festival. It is a yearly and colorful event showcasing the culture and lifestyle of our fellow Bicolanos. The dragonboat race kicked off on the 20th of August through the 21st .

Competition was hot as dragonboat crews from all over the Philippines paddled their way to the finish line and despite of the rainy and cold weather, MDDRT didn’t waver and bagged 2nd runner up for 300m mixed boat category.
