ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) -- The Louisiana Dragon Boat races crowned a winner Saturday afternoon.

The Dragon Boat Races are the Alexandria Museum of Art's biggest fundraiser of the year.

Forty teams raced down the Red River in traditional dragon boats. 

"It is community building it is team building for each of the teams that participates," said Catherine Pears, executive director of the museum.  "You have to have 20 paddlers and one drummer and if you can't paddle together you are not going to do very well. We hope they have a great time, we hope they enjoy supporting the museum and I hope they learn a little bit more about what we do."

This year's winner was a team called "We're Sexy and We Row It," followed by "Crossfit Alexandria" and "Bonecrushers."
