Dragon Runs and Croaker Drop New Year's Eve

Touch a dragon for good luck…. Be out on Hodges Street on December 31 to ring in 2020 at the running of the Oriental New Years’ Eve Dragon. There are two runnings – both starting and finishing at Hodges and South Water. The first run starts at 8p, the second around 11:30p and in recent years has had not one but two dragons as the Chinese dragon joins in on the late run. Bring pots, bring pans, and make your own music for the dragon.

After the end of that second dragon run, stick around the Hodges Street waterfront just a few minutes more: at midnight, the Oriental Croaker will drop at Town Dock to welcome in the new year. Scenes from a recent December 31st’s festivities, here.
