Historic dragon Event

Club donates cost of Tee Shirts for Yar Loong

A number of members of the Y Service Club of Kangaroo Flat assisted in carrying the Night Dragon “ Yar Loong” in the 2019 Bendigo Easter procession. The club sponsored the refurbishment of Yar Loong back in the 1990’s following damage in the late 1930’s at it last outing before being refurbished. This was a very special occasion as there were Three Imperial Dragons on display.

  •  “Loong” nearly 120 years old and this was his final ever appearance in public display.
  •  “Yar Loong” the 80 something year old and also possibly the last ever outing also.
  •  “Sun Loong” the 50 year old dragon that replaced Loong.
  •  “Dia Gum Loong” (big gold mountain) 120 meter long dragon made his first official showing to the public.

The three Imperial Dragons lined up at the fountain in Bendigo with Yar Loong (carriers with the Y's Men’s logo on the shirts), Loong, Sun Loong & Dia Gum Loong
