Summer festivals in NYC range from a dragon boat race to an Italian feast

In the dog days of summer, this dazzlingly colorful festival celebrates the Chinese Year of the Dog with splashy dance performances, musical acts, storytelling, arts and crafts — and, of course, a thrilling aquatic race whose handcrafted teak dragon boats are floating works of art. Cheer on your favorites as more than 200 teams from around the world vie for $10,000 in prize money, all of it earmarked for charity. Along with traditional Chinese snacks, the festival’s International Food Court spotlights Southern, Latin, and Mediterranean treats.
