Then, on Sunday, Glasgow teams will battle it out to become the Dragon Boat Racing Champion and win the coveted Clydebuilt Dragon Trophy.

Based on ancient Chinese customs, this adrenalin-pumping sport is highly addictive. Teams of up to 10 paddles, plus one drummer race in traditional boats.

On shore, the programme features something for everyone with outdoor survival skills, traditional crafts, building techniques or on-land rowing, as well as the Clydebuilt Market, food, music and arts and crafts.

Festival coordinator, Jess Bruce, said: “We’re really excited to be back.

“We’ve put together a fantastic lineup of local music, makers, and activities to make this the best year yet. No tickets needed, so pop down and get involved”.
