This week while pondering the concept of color I thought to myself "what better way to illustrate color then to get out and photography people and things at an event." In my experience, event's typically illustrate a sense of culture and diversity through it's vendors (via their items for sell—as in the image above), its performances, as well as those in attendance.
In Colorado, one is certain to find something going on just about every weekend in this state of over 300 days of sunshine. I was lucky to discover that just about fifteen minutes from my home the 11th annual Colorado Dragon Boat Festival (CDBF) was going on.
The CDBF celebrates Denver’s rich and diverse Asian communities through performing arts and a marketplace as well as the main event—an ancient sport of Dragon Boat Racing at Sloan’s Lake Park. This year the event is expecting around 52 competing teams.
