There was a dragon...


... in Roberts Park. Well, it was the Dragon Boat Races, so perhaps it wasn't surprising. The event was, once again, spread over three days. Saltaire and the park were heaving with crowds. However, unless you are involved or know someone who is, it's much the same year on year. I didn't really go and watch the races this year. Instead, I walked through the park and took a quick look and then carried on walking up to Shipley Glen, where it was much less crowded, though the music and announcements from the park carried a surprisingly long way on the humid air.

  1. Not a Welsh dragon that followed you home from your holiday then.
    Must have been warm work yesterday, either in a dragon outfit or a dragon boat.

  2. More years ago than I care to remember, the static fairground at Shipley Glen was very noisy indeed!

  4. It's quite something to see in person. The dragon costume is well done.

    We had our dragon boat festival this weekend, but I didn't go down.
