Featured Videos

Gilda the Green Dragon, just hanging out in PDX. And here is a video that shows the PDX Disco Dragons dancing at the 2017 Portland Winter Light Festival.

The Dragons have been to all 5 of the Portland Winter Light Festivals, in the Starlight Parade in 2017 & 2018 (where we won “Most Portland” for our crazy entry), and in the Lantern Parade at the Procession of the Species in Olympia in 2018. You can sometimes catch them around Portland, keep an eye out. They love to dance! Fun times!

oh, just a bunch of dragons dancing on some lily pads… Portland Winter Light Festival Ellumiglow
