The Penticton Dragonboat Festival would have celebrated its 20th year over Sept. 12 and 13.
Instead, COVID-19 put the festival on hold for the year.
To mark what would have been their festival, the organizers and local dragon boaters put together a socially-distanced sprint on Skaha Lake.
Two members of Penticton Dragon Boat piloted the 450-kilogram vessel, which usually holds 20 paddlers and a steersperson.
The festival is now scheduled to celebrate its 20th year in 2021 on Sept. 11 and 12.
