Lanterns to light up Dragon Parade’s ten year anniversary

Oriel y Parc Gallery and Visitor Centre will hold a Dragon Parade with a difference on Saturday 2 March to mark St David’s Day and the event’s ten year anniversary.

The parade, which will be held at 5.30pm, will see local school children and community groups carry nature-inspired lantern sculptures through the streets of Britain’s smallest city, led by a dazzling dragon lantern.

Contact Oriel y Parc to arrange a workshop to create your sparkling sculpture ready for the Dragon Lantern Parade in St Davids at 5.30pm on 2 March.

Oriel y Parc’s Administration, Retail & Events Co-ordinator, Katie Murphy said: “The Dragon Parade has extremely well supported by the local community over the past decade and we felt the ten year anniversary was a great time to do something a bit different.

“Groups are invited to create their own locally inspired lantern for the parade and free support is available from artist Elly Morgan with workshops available at Oriel y Parc or at your chosen school/venue.

Gwiber the giant adder sculpture, created for the Adders are Amazing project, will also be coming out of hibernation to join the dragons for the parade.”

Free drop-in sessions will also be held at Oriel y Parc between 2pm-4pm on Monday 25 February and Thursday 28 February to enable local people to create a lantern so they can also join in with the festivities.

If you, your business, group or school would like to get involved please call Oriel y Parc on 01437 720392 or email info@orielyparc.co.uk to register your interest in the workshops and parade event.
