Work in progress.
Coming soon to a parade near you! Khalil (Arabic for greatly loved), Artisans For Hope's bicycle-powered parade dragon, is being constructed by LeeAnn Garton, Dave Webster, Linda Dixon and others. Dragons figure in tales from most every culture on earth; we are united in our fascination. We'll share the progress as Khalil comes together.
Khalil and its rider and puppeteers (for the wings and head) will lead a troop of riders, refugees and community supporters. The Tour de Fat happens August 12 this year. The parade time has not yet been set.
