It’s highlight is the Dragon Boat Racing on Preston Docks, Riversway.

Teams row down the docks with the drums pounding and its quite the atmosphere – stirring sleepy Docklands flat owners from their beds.

15 team members are in each boat, with teams coming from councils, community organisations and local businesses.

Tony Worrall was down there to snap these pictures.
