The Dragons won’t be basking in our warm waters this summer…

The 10th year of our Dragon Festival will come

But, not without some work. Stand by for news on making a historic decade-of-Dragons

Planning for the 10th year of the Festival meant some changes had to be made, but we’re hoping to have the biggest and best celebration for a Decade of Dragons in 2020! The GIC SUP Cup will return for the 3rd year August 17.

The Gun Island Chute SUP Cup is held on the Downtown portion of our beautiful Alabama River, and is open to paddle boarders of all skill levels! Propel yourselves down- and up-river (that’s right, the course is lap-based) in pursuit of cash prizes, medals, and more!
