The London Regatta Centre will be hosting the 19th Hong Kong Boat Festival on Sunday, June 29.
The event, organised by the London Chinatown Lions Club, will include a boat race with four cups up for grabs.
There will also be live music with two festival stages showcasing new music for the east and west, martial arts displays, raffles, traditional Chinese lion dancing and a food festival offering flavours of Eastern Asia.
It will take place between 10am and 6pm at the Royal Docks.
Last year’s event saw 10,000 people turn up to enjoy the fun.
