Sea Serpent. Purple Dragon

This dragon is identical to the sea serpent statue in Crosby, Minnesota -- it's just painted differently.

Large Purple Dragon

I have been traveling up and down this road for the past 28 years, so I have watched the progression of this dragon! They must have been collecting pieces of it for years, because for a long time, there were just pieces of it laying around. Then, one time I went by...the whole dragon was put together. On another trip, I noticed that it was purple!

Next to a sign for "Burgundy's Innovative Cuisine" on Route 11/15 is a 2-story tall, purple and blue-green, serpent-type dragon. It sits at the edge of the parking lot and I'm not sure if this is to advertise the restaurant or what. It appears to be new (relatively) and made of fiberglass.
