Dragon boat races continue on Lake Arlington

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (WLS) -- Sunday was the second day of the dragon boat races on Lake Arlington, in northwest suburban Arlington Heights.

Twenty people paddle in unison, to push the elaborate boats across the water in what is said to be one of the world's fastest growing water sports.

Dragon boats originated in China more than 2,000 years ago.
