Newy to light up in magical lantern parade

Fans of How to Train Your Dragon and Game of Thrones alike will be thrilled to visit Civic Park this Saturday night. 

The family friendly event will feature live music, illuminated puppets, a lantern parade and two giant dragons. 

The dragons are currently receiving their finishing touches in the Curious Legends studio. 

Lights are being installed in a mammoth 13 metre long dragon made by local designer, Ross Brown. 

Serious training is also being done with Curious Legend’s massive Wish Dragon, ‘Frank’, who has been known to eat children from time to time.  

The audience are welcome to join the fun and can participate in the lantern parade, or join in to help train the dragons and other luminous creatures. 

It is of course also possible to simply come along and watch the show, bring a picnic and listen to the live band, Big Jarda. 

“We ask participants to bring along a torch or light source, as these will be important for waking the dragons and other beasts.” says Mitchell Reese, Curious Legends Artistic Director. 

This event is part of Made. In. Newcastle – a year long program of Newcastle Arts activation spearheaded by Curious Legends, and funded by Newcastle City Council’s SBR program and the Australian Government’s RISE fund.
