The Major Sports Events Committee announced today that it has awarded “M” Mark status to the Hong Kong International Dragon Boat Races which are scheduled to be held at the Tsim Sha Tsui East Promenade from June 15 to 16.
 
The committee’s chairman Wilfred Ng said the event will not only promote sports development and showcase Hong Kong’s capability to host world-class sports events, but also add colour and vibrancy to the city, bring in more visitors from abroad and enhance Hong Kong’s position as a centre for major international sports events.
 
“The Hong Kong International Dragon Boat Races has always been one of the highlighted events in Hong Kong’s summer. Top dragon boat teams from around the world will provide the spectators with thrilling dragon boat races.
 
“There will also be an array of cultural performances and delectable food stalls on the spot, allowing spectators to immerse themselves in Hong Kong’s unique Eastern charm beyond the competition,” he added.
