I took the hoops to the Dragon Boat Race event in Oriental on August 14, 2012, and set up in the children’s area to help entertain families of the people who were in the races.
The day started pleasantly enough.
Unfortunately, a storm was coming in fast, and the races had to be cancelled after it became too dangerous to be on the water. One of the boats capsized; the team made it to the pickup boat safely.
I packed up my tent and hoops after they called the races off and went south to see how John was faring at Pirate Fest.
See John’s post about Pirate Fest in Beaufort for the rest of the story. The storm had spared Beaufort on Saturday, although it had been too rough for the dive boats to go out.
