Join Us To Awaken The Dragons!
Dotting of the Eye - Approximately 7pm. A traditional ceremony to celebrate the opening of the festival during which the pupil of each dragon's eye is painted in so the dragons can see. With another stroke of a brush, paint is added to their tongues so the dragons can breathe, now the dragons are ready to race for us!
Dotting of the Eye will take place at Our Lady Star of the Sea Historic Church, 14400 Solomons Island Rd., Solomons, Maryland.
Accessible Parking for Friday will be located in parking lot behind OLSS Historic Church.
All donations benefit SMCR's programs for individuals with developmental differences.
