Then today, a week before the event I had another idea. I hope I can include it in the festival this time because I like it better than the dragon on a stick and I think it will cost less. It's based on a paper bag costume. Cut the holes for the arms and eyes (so you can see where you are going) and tape on the dragon parts. The jaw opens and closes. I used 2 straws taped to the lower jaw and a brass brad for a hinge point.
Here are some pictures:
