The Chinese Festival has been held regularly for many years in Bendigo, Victoria, Australia. It marks the appearance of Sun Loong, the new Dragon, thought to be the world's longest imperial Dragon. The festival culminates in the "Waking the Dragon" ceremony that prepares the Dragon for its walk around Bendigo during the Gala Parade. Sun Loong first appeared in 1971 and was created to replace Loong who first appeared a long time ago and now spends retirement in the Golden Dragon Museum.
