UPDATE: The DFW Dragon Boat, Kite and Lantern Festival has been rescheduled for June 7 because of inclement weather.
Enjoy colorful kites flying above, dragon boats racing on the water, an international costume parade, cultural performances and classes (including kite making), a lantern parade, more than 300 performers, a dragon-boat-drummer costume contest, and more at this free annual festival in Irving on Sunday, hosted by Marco Polo World Foundation.
This festival, which replaced Taste Addison last year, is more caviar than corn dog. There will be food and drink from local restaurants, plus activities, including a fire pit-cooking demonstration by Smoke chef Tim Byres and a cocktail-making lesson from Parliament mixologist Eddie "Lucky" Campbell. Chefs, including Knife's John Tesar and Cat Cora of Food Network's Iron Chef, will give cooking demonstrations. It runs Friday and Saturday at Addison Circle Park.
