Dragon Boat Festival is happening!

We had the Gung Haggis Chinese parade dragon out & about at the Dragon Boat Festival @ Creekside/Olympic village. We salsa danced, posed with little children and VIP’s, and saluted the Abreast in a Boat ceremony!

    I love this! I am a Programs Coordinator at a Seniors Centre and was battling with the decision of celebrating Chinese New Years or Robbie Burn’s birthday while you decided they weren’t mutually exclusive! Well done, Toddish McWong. Just a question: I would like to rent/borrow/buy cheaply a dragon head like yours for display for our little celebration – could you steer me into the right direction as to where I can find one?

    I’ll come find you at the next boat race!
