The Chinese zodiac includes animals including rabbits, monkeys, roosters, dragons and other animals. This is the Year of the Horse, and CDBF is celebrating by bringing the cutest horse in the world to the festival. Meet Nezzie (short for "Nezumi," which is Japanese for "mouse"!). Nezzie is a Miniature Horse, so she will not grow bigger. She's adorable.
You can celebrate Nezzie's Year, by taking a photo with her at the festival. Find her by Dragonland, the children's area. For a minimum donation of $5 which will go to sustaining the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival, you and your family can pose with Nezzie and shoot a photo with your own camera, or we'll use our camera and email you the digital photo.
Be sure to say "hi" to Nezzie, and support CDBF!
