​​Celebrate Halloween at Punta Gorda's War on the Peace Dragon Boat Festival, which will be held on the Peace River waterfront at Laishley Park! Hosted by the Charlotte Local Education Foundation in partnership with the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce and High Five Dragon Boat LLC. The Festival benefits "Take Stock in Children", the Foundation's mentoring and college scholarship program.

"Take Stock in Children" is a statewide, non-profit program that helps low-income, at-risk children stay out of trouble, graduate from high school, attend college, and become productive citizens. In Charlotte County, the Take Stock in Children program is administered by the Charlotte Local Education Foundation, where over 120 students participate in this very successful program. 

Our Beneficiary: Take Stock in Children

This is a great venue for both paddlers and spectators.  And Punta Gorda has a full agenda of Halloween related activities for the day and evening.  We’ve blocked rooms at the city’s hotels and there are several fine restaurants in Punta Gorda’s historic downtown.  Bring family and friends and your Dragon Boat Team and enjoy a fun-filled day with Circus Fun, food, crafts, and - oh yes - dragon boat racing!
