Attached are some vidcaps of the footage of four of the cast taking part in the Auckland Dragon Boat festival this weekend.
Orlando “Legolas” Bloom, Elijah “Frodo” Wood, Billy “Pippin” Boyd and Dominic “Merry” Monaghan all took part in the celebrity bath tub race.
The bath tubs turned out to be rather difficult to manoeuvre and the event degenerated into a swimming race. Elijah seemed to be the weakest swimmer as all thoughts of fellowship were abandoned, bath-tubs were boarded, pirate style and the contestants swam for the finish line.
The actors happily posed for photo ops with fans and seemed to enjoy themselves tremendously. Orlando claimed victory but Elijah seemed to think that Dominic had taken the gold medal.
