Khalil (Arabic for greatly loved), Artisans For Hope's bicycle-powered parade dragon was constructed by LeeAnn Garton, Dave Webster, Linda Dixon and others. He was part of the Tour De Fat bicycle parade and was totally bicycle powered. A group gathered before the parade and put Khalil together. His tail, head, and finally the tubing which would make him "roar".
A group of supporters rode along side of Khalil and we were all so proud of our entry in the parade.
Dragons figure in tales from most every culture on earth; we are united in our fascination. Khalil was the star!
He roared, he was bicycle powered and he was admired!
