New Year's Eve The Dragon Run in Oriental
Joe Cox and friends saw the dragon first in the sixties. The dragon makes it's yearly appearance on New Year's Eve. He/she comes out just after dark, lumbering down Hodges street as children (of all ages) bang pots to drive off evil spirits and bring in the new year. A second running of the dragon occurs closer to midnight. Come touch the dragon for luck as it makes its annual appearance in the town.
