Dragon’s Prophet: Now through Jan. 15, 2015
The Silver Dragon Festival is a time for family and friends to gather in celebration of the winter season and the forthcoming New Year’s festivities. It’s a time to enjoy the warmth of good food and pure wine, performances and songs praising the deeds of the dragon dance, and share gifts with one another to help bless the New Year. Unfortunately, this year’s Silver Dragon Festival has fallen prey to the misdeeds of a group of goblins and giants who plan to steal the dragon gifts. In order to bring peace to the festivities, it’s up to the good people to come together and put a stop to the goblins and giants. In true holiday spirit though, the Great Dragons don’t want to see any killing in the struggle, so the people must use the “snow gift of light” and make snowballs and snowmen to restore peace.
