The 28th Annual Dubuque Dragon Boat Races are underway this weekend.

The event is being held at Miller Riverview Park on the Mississippi River.

There are 47 teams are taking part in this year's event -- 18 eighteen of those teams are kids in high school and middle school. 

Some teams traveled far distances to participate in the boat races.  

"We have a team from Chatam, Ontario.  We have teams from Iowa, Fort Dodge, Cedar Rapids,  Burlington, and then we have teams from across the river," said Sue Miller,  president of the Dubuque Dragon Boat Association.
