First Ice Dragon Boat Festival in North America

Valecraft Homes Ltd. was part of North America’s first Ottawa Ice Dragon Boat Festival in Ottawa on February 18th 2017.

As part of Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation and Capital Experience and Winterlude, 60 teams competed in Canada’s newest winter sport.

We too are celebrating a milestone, 35 years in business!  We were thrilled to be part of the experience while fundraising for local charities.  Even more, we are ecstatic to have come in 1st place for the top Shiver & Giver Fundraising race and overall Mixed Champions, woot-woot!

Big thank you to the Ottawa Ice Dragon Boat Festival, Winterlude and HDBF for organizing this event.  Big shout out to all the volunteers and teams for making it happen.
