Dragon Dance/ Espace pour la vie

According to event organizers, “the dragon dance is done by several people. Each holds a bamboo stick supporting part of a dragon, which can be as long as 15 metres. The dancers make the beast ripple, dance and flutter to chase away the bad spirits.”

It will be a magical night as the dragon dances around the beautiful botanical gardens!
