The Tucson Chinese Cultural Center, 1288 W. River Road, is having its Dragon Boat Festival from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. 

The event is free to attend, but if you wish to enter in the dragon boat race, where decorated balloon propelled boats will race across a pond, it's $15. That price includes a take-home boat and lunch during the event.

There will be other activities such as Chinese arts and crafts. 

Food will be available to purchase. Offerings include Chinese tamales and Asian infused hot dogs.
