Abilene welcomes dragons and royalty downtown

Families enjoyed a parade, crafts, and an outdoor movie Saturday as the Abilene Cultural Affairs Council previewed the new 3D dragon mural and unveiled the new kinetic sculpture at the Abilene Convention center. The parade featured the Abilene High School Band as well as the Texas Dragon/Lion Dance Team, and princesses and other characters in costume. The T&P Depot now offers a Dragon Experience, and the new 3D being installed behind the depot will allow visitors to sit on the dragon's neck giving the impression of flying with him.
