      6th Dragons Parade (2006)
    by Skeptic-jr
 

Till 2000 every year, usually in the beginning of June, there is organized a great Dragons' Parade in the city of Krakow. It is a procession of reptiles and knights from the Main Market Square to the Wawel Hill, family picnic near the castle with many activities for kids and adults, concerts and contests, the huge "lights and sounds" show and fireworks in the evening on the shore of Vistula River.

In 2005 almost 50 dragons and thousands people took place in parade.

The main organizer is Groteska Theater. For the reports about the previous editions of the event and the current development of the plans for next parades you can see at their webpage.
