Chinese city donates 3 dragon boats to Honolulu

By Associated Press


A Chinese city has donated three dragon boats and dozens of wood paddles to Honolulu.

The People's Municipal Government of Zhongshan is a sister city of Honolulu.

A ceremony is to be held Friday, when Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle will accept the gifts from Zhongshan's vice mayor.

Honolulu officials say the boats were donated to foster the 15-year tradition of dragon boat racing here. 

The new boats meet International Dragon Boat Federation standards and have a combined value of about $10,000.

Honolulu has 27 sister-city relationships throughout the world.
