Dragon Parade

Annual Dragon Parade

Since the first gathering in 1990, HWEN neighbors have come together to celebrate spring, socialize and hear music in Fannie Mae Dees Park (AKA Dragon Park.) Only in our Village will one find cowboy hats, country musicians, Scottish bagpipe players and Chinese Dragons coming together to celebrate the rites of spring. Neighbors, young and old, gather at Natchez Trace and Blair to ride bikes or march along with our Good Luck Dragon who leads the parade through the streets of our neighborhood, and on to Dragon Park for more fun and festivities including an old-fashioned ice cream social.

Each year after the ice cream social, the music begins with the kick-off of the annual Dragon Music Sundays concert series.
