Dragon boat racing is a traditional Chinese cultural event, and the 19th Asian Games Dragon Boat Race will be held at the Wenzhou Dragon Boat Sports Center this year.

The dragon boat, an important part of Wenzhou culture, is a symbol of the Wenzhou spirit in the new era. It has attracted many foreigners, such as Iurri, a Ukrainian anchor of the Wenzhou Overseas Media Center, who once shot a video about paddling a dragon boat. The video has received widespread praise from millions of netizens at home and abroad.

In today's video, we will follow Denise Horn, dean of the College of Liberal Arts at Wenzhou-Kean University, and beat the drum in a dragon boat.

Doctor Horn is from Massachusetts in the United States. With the goal of bringing students to a more open world, she came to Wenzhou in March 2022 and has tasted Wenzhou's specialties, explored its picturesque landscapes, and experienced traditional Chinese intangible culture.

For Doctor Horn, who is fond of Chinese culture, beating the dragon boat drum was very enjoyable. We hope she will continue to explore more of Wenzhou's treasures.
