The dragon is there, but getting faded. Still pretty neat.

The dragon mural is right across from the historic Belcourt Theatre.

[Matthew Krist, 12/26/2015]

The extra-long creature was painted by two local artists, inspired by a sea serpent sculpture in a park down the street (which everyone in the neighborhood assumed was a dragon).
