Wonderful piece of interactive art! The store was kind enough to give us 3 free tokens and we had so much fun we went to the liquor store and bought more!

Kaskaskia Dragon

We took the owner's advice and visited the dragon just after sunset, so we could see both the dragon and its fire.

Nice stovepipe hat on that dragon.

It's quite fun! The dragon had on a top hat in honor of Abraham Lincoln. We found t-shirts at the hardware store just down the street from the dragon.
