Pizza Joe, Me, and the Snow Dragon on YouTube
Pizza Joe's lovely wife Holly Jo and a friend made this short video for YouTube that shows the Haines Snow Dragon being put together in the Elks Lodge before the parade a couple years ago, and me and Pizza Joe (he's the head of the dragon, I was the smoke that year) chatting afterwards. It's kind of cute. Chilkat Valley News editor Tom Morphet is the loud voice complaining about the hockey players not showing up for their float, Annette Smith the dragon's handler is in seen in white pinning some fabric, and Tod Sebens helps Holly Jo tie on her "fin" head gear. There's a glimpse of my daughter Eliza (the long haired pretty girl) at the end. The dragon will be in the annual parade again, on December 11.
