ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - Six dragon boats were lowered into the Red River Monday for the Fifth Annual Louisiana Dragon Boat Races.  

The boats are each 42 feet long and came all the way from Montreal.

Event organizers say it's a competition, but a friendly one.  

"Typically it's accessible to anybody at all, anybody and everybody," said Philip Goldfinch, event organizer from 22 Dragons. "It's a way to compete with people, have fun with people, and really work as a team together."

Dragon boat races begin at 7 a.m. Saturday, May 10.
