Henry Wan, chairman of the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival, and Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe dot the eyes of dragonhead with red paint to celebrate the upcoming event. The heads are attached to the front of the boat as a blessing. The festival, now in its 19th year, takes place in Flushing Meadows Corona Park on Aug. 8 and 9.
