New Year's Eve Dragon Run and Croaker Drop 2023 - 2024

Touch a dragon for good luck…. Be out on Hodges Street on December 31 to ring in 2024 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: 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.
