Dozens of dragon-shaped boats hit Hong Kong’s waters for the annual Dragon Boat Festival. Teams hurried against each other paddling frantically in order to make it to the finish line. "Our team has been training since March. We have been training twice a week, two evenings between 7 and 9 p.m. after work," coach Stephen Sin of the Hop Wo Dragon team told APTN. At the end, everyone got wet as a sign of good fortune, though fortunately there were no flames involved. InsideEdition.com’s Stephanie Officer has more.
