Dragon prowling downtown Memphis

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - A 41-foot long dragon will soon be circling downtown Memphis, but it is not scaring passengers. Instead, it is going to promote a unique race on the Mississippi River.

The newly decorated trolley is the first in the city to be fully wrapped in a graphic design.

The artwork features a giant, two headed gold and red water dragon promoting next month's Duncan-Williams Dragon Boat Races.

Officials from the investment firm sponsoring the event say they hope everyone will enjoy riding the dragon trolley while supporting a great cause.

The races will benefit the Tennessee Clean Water Network.

The races start September 22 at Mud Island River Park.
