This weekend sees the main street of Thirroul come alive, complete with a fire-breathing dragon in King Street.
The Dragon will be carved by international sand-artist Dennis Massoud, as part of the two days (and one night) of fun, food, markets and creativity that is the annual Seaside and Arts Festival !
