The 26th edition of the annual Sabah Dragon Boat Race will be held at Likas Bay on June 18 and 19, 2011. According to a release, the Race held on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month of the Chinese calendar, the Chinese celebrate the Duanwu Festival not only to remember Qu Yuan, a poet, but also to honour "the spirit of the dragon", which is the spirit of uniting and working together as a team for one common purpose.

During the race, competing teams drive their boats forward, rowing to the rhythm of pounding drums. The multi-coloured boats are decorated with ferocious-looking dragon heads, scaly bodies and elaborate tails that rise out of the waters. The winners of the race are crowned king for the year.

Spectators can also sample delicious local fare at the stalls set up along Likas Bay. The most popular Dragon Boat Festival delicacy are the rice dumplings called tzung tzi or chung tze, which are eaten in memory of Qu Yuan.

Besides being popular among local teams, the Sabah Dragon Boat Race will also have participants from other states in the country, as well as international teams. Teams expected to participate are coming from Sarawak, Labuan, Penang, Indonesia, Singapore, Australia and Brunei Darussalam, among others.
