The Half Moon Dragon Boat Festival will return on Saturday, Aug. 6, 2016, at Half Moon Beach in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
It is a fresh and exciting festival to promote community wellness and teamwork, and raise funds to support hospice services.
Fifty-two teams will paddle sleek, Hong Kong-style dragon boats along a 250-meter course on Half Moon Lake in the heart of Eau Claire.

Amy Eitrheim speaks about her husband's, Dr. David Eitrheim, chosen path after he was diagnosed with cancer. The moments made and the times shared in those final months revealed support, comfort, dignity and joy. Hospice, provided by Mayo Clinic Health System, allowed Dave to finish his race on his terms.
