Awakening of the dragon | Photos, videos


FRIENDS from Australia and abroad have come to Bendigo to help rouse Sun Loong.

People poured into the Dai Gum San Chinese Precinct to see the awakening of the dragon, a two-part process that recommences at 2pm.

Sun Loong will star in tomorrow’s gala parade.

A campaign for the 47-year-old dragon’s replacement and restoration is underway.
