A BENDIGO child has created his own Dai Gum Loong in an effort to make other people happy.
Soren Pritchard loves the Easter Fair parade and Bendigo's Golden Dragon Museum.
The five-year-old can normally walk to the Easter Parade from his from door. He goes to see the museum's dragons several times a year.
But the parade has been postponed to 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
So Soren asked his mum Pieta Pritchard if he could make his own Dai Gum Loong.
The cardboard construction fits Soren and his two-year-old brother.
He's taken it on one practice parade on their daily walk. He plans to decorate it, before taking it on another parade.
"He wanted to parade around our neighborhood so the neighbours could see him," Mrs Pritchard said.
"He was saying he just wanted everyone to see him, because he would make everyone happy.
"It's so sweet for him to want to do it, especially when he was saying he wanted to do it to make other people happy."
