Wrexham’s Dragonfest celebrations were a huge success today with large crowds turning out to catch a glimpse of a very unique visitor.

Held at the Wrexham Museum throughout today, the event saw the installation of an impressive, smoke breathing dragon on the museum forecourt.

The impressive Dragon, with its reptile like black and red scales, was in charge of keeping watch at the museum throughout the day, with an outreached claw ready to capture any brave passers by.

During the day there were large queues down Regent Street and towards St Mark’s Car Park, with many hoping to catch a glimpse and have their picture taken with the dragon itself.

There were plenty of activities taking place at the museum throughout the day to coincide with Dragonfest, including the chance for young dragon hunters to take a ride on Hemlock (a very impressive wooden dragon statue!)

Inside the museum there face painting, a dragon egg hunt and the chance to paint your own shield
– we’re told over 300 shields were created throughout the duration of the day!

One visitor to the museum told us: “I’ve been looking forward to seeing the dragon for ages – I’m so excited to finally see it today!”

If you went to see the dragon today tweet your pictures to @wrexham or email them to news@wrexham.com for inclusion in this article!

Thanks to Margaret Reeves for getting in touch with this image of her grandsons meeting the dragon!
