On August 9, we all went into Toronto to celebrate Awareness Day. There is a blog post on that here, but taking the dragons out meant that practice was needed beforehand. I signed up for doing the dragon dance so most of the pictures I took are of the dragons. One dragon needs 20 people to carry, while the other needs 50 - and is the largest in North America. The small dragon can do a variety of figures. Together, the two can do the "double spiral".
