This weekend the annual Dragon Boats Festival for the Cure took place in Tecumseh at the new Tecumseh Waterfront Park. Tecumseh also added a 25 foot, 19,000 pound granite Dragon statue to the park. There are over 3000 paddlers raising money for breast cancer. A rose ceremoney took place today where people honoured loved ones who lost the fight to breast cancer by the reading of poem and performance of a song dedicated to the event. The races continue today and this evening.
