Harry and the Dragon

June 22nd, 2010

The annual Dragon Boat Festival attracts 100,000 visitors in Vancouver to honour the tradition of dragon boat racing. This weekend, Harry made another public debut at the festival with the of the Shark Truth team. We had a great time playing trivia games with everybody, talking about our favourite animal – the shark – and enjoying the music and festivities of the Dragon Boat Festival.

Winners of the prize draw will be contacted directly for their free introduction diving lesson – courtesy of Edge Diving.

Thank you for energizing us to continue to Stop The Soup and we can’t wait to see everyone again. Keep an eye out for us during Shark Week coming the first week of August.

Check out the photos from the event on our Flickr photostream.
