It is with great sadness the Boston Dragon Boat Festival has to say good-bye to another festival legend, Peter Murray... 😢

Peter has been with the festival since 1980. He has worn many hats over the decades, dock staff, board member, committee member, and many more! Although he and his wife Libby moved to Chicago, Peter comes back every year to help out at the Dragon Boat Festival. Many dragon boaters, and volunteers such as myself had learned a great deal from him and he always made sure the docks were super lively, including traditionally accidentally falling into the water every year 😊 Peter........ no words can express the legacy you have left behind... we will miss you dearly!! ❤️💐

We at the Boston Dragon Boat Festival condemn the mass shooting targeting Asians and Asian Americans in Atlanta, GA on March 16th. We convey our condolences to the victims’ families. As violence and hate crimes against Asians and Asian Americans have increased since the start of Covid19 pandemic, we stand with the Asian, Asian American & Pacific Islanders and the dragon boat racing communities globally to support actions that stop hate crimes against all minority groups and to end racism. Meanwhile we are more than ever committed to our mission of fostering learning and exploration of Boston’s diverse Asian multi-cultural heritage through arts, cultural celebrations and dragon boat racing as well as promoting community unity and health for all.

Here are some helpful information, organizations and resources on anti-hate crimes and anti-racism:
