SHOT 7/29/2007 - Volunteer Ted Zin of Littleton, Co. tries to shade himself from the sun while watching the 2007 Colorado Dragon Boat Festival from a dock on Sloan's Lake in Denver, Co. Zin said it was the first time he'd been to the races and was enjoying watching while volunteering. The sport of Dragon boat racing is over 2000 years old and features teams of 18 paddlers - nine men and nine women plus someone to steer the boat - all rowing in sync to the beat of a drum and racing to a flag 200 meters away on Sloan's Lake in Denver, Co. Founded in 2001 to celebrate Denver?s rich Asian Pacific American culture, the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival has become the region?s fastest growing and most acclaimed new festival. Festival-goers get to explore the Asian culture through demonstrations, crafts, shopping, eating, and the growing sport of dragon boat racing. .(Photo by Marc Piscotty / © 2007)
