City of Salisbury, Cheerwine to host 2018 Cheerwine Festival

SALISBURY  To commemorate the launch of Cheerwines second century, the city and Cheerwine are teaming up to host another Cheerwine-themed festival.

The free festival will be from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. May 19 in downtown Salisbury.

Festivalgoers will have access to cold Cheerwine, live music, Southern food, Cheerwine merchandise, family activities, a beer garden and local crafts vendors.

As Cheerwines hometown, Salisbury is thrilled to partner with the soft drink manufacturer on the second Cheerwine Festival, following the success of the 100th anniversary event in 2017, said Mayor Al Heggins. Cheerwine has been a staple in Salisbury homes since the beverages founding in 1917, and we look forward to its continued success in our community.

In 2017, the brand commemorated its 100th birthday with its Centennial Celebration featuring live music and a barbecue contest. More than 30,000 people attended.

Created in 1917 by L.D. Peeler, the soft drink is known for its one-of-a-kind soft cherry flavor.

Owned by the Carolina Beverage Corp., the 101-year-old company is still privately owned and managed by the same founding family, five generations of whom have worked there. Cliff Ritchie is the current president and CEO.

More details about the festival will be available in coming weeks.

Fifth Annual Dragon Boat Festival

SALISBURY The fifth annual Rowan Chamber Dragon Boat Festival will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 28 at The Shrine Club on High Rock Lake, 6480 Long Ferry Road.

The Dragon Boat Festival is the largest annual event held on High Rock Lake, the second-largest lake in North Carolina.

Viewing is free for spectators. Nearly 3,800 Rowan, Davidson and Stanly County residents came out to watch more than 25 teams compete in 2017.

Besides dragon boat races, food vendors will be joined by local soft drink company Cheerwine as well as Salisbury-based breweries and vineyards.

Entertainment during the lunch break will include a drummers parade and raffle.

Spectators are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets. No pets, coolers or outside food will be allowed.

Parking is by donation and is available in lots adjacent to the Shrine Club. The Salisbury/Rowan County Convention and Visitors Bureau will provide trolley rides to and from the parking areas.

The Rowan Chamber is passionate about health and wellness. Strong team building coupled with hosting an event of this magnitude that brings together family fun and competition  all on High Rock Lake, our natural resource here in Rowan County  is a win-win for the community, said Teresa Dakins, chairwoman of the festival committee.

Pan Am Dragon Boat has been contracted to oversee the competition and provide each team with the necessary equipment, including life vests.

Teams will learn how to paddle during a practice session, which is included in team registration fees.

Each team will need to provide 20 paddlers  at least eight of whom must be female  and a drummer.

On race day, each team will compete in three heats on a 350-meter straight course.

Dragon boat racing dates back to a more than 2,300-year-old tradition in ancient China with 45-foot boats decked with dragon heads, tails and scales that seat 20 paddlers each.

Drummers sit in the bow pounding the drum to the beat of the paddlers stroke, and a steer person stands in the stern guiding the team down the race course.

Team sponsorships, as well as corporate partnerships, are available at various levels.

For more information, contact the Rowan Chamber of Commerce at 704-633-4221, info@rowanchamber.com or www.rowanchamberdragonboat.org.
