Fun era: giant dragons are coming

The year starts with major events in Almeida Junior malls. The giants, famous for spitting fire and flying at high speed, will invade Continente Shopping, in Greater Florianópolis, on January 17th. The audience will revive the myth and unravel the mysteries of these great creatures with the Animatronic Dragons International Exhibition.  The show is free and can be visited at the mall’s events square until early February. During all exhibition weekends, there will be a different programming.

Some cultures define dragons as supernatural sources of wisdom and strength, others just as destructive beasts. In the exhibition, the largest of the dragons is five meters high and eight meters long. They make sounds, move their tails, wings, upper and lower limbs and some even release smoke through the mouth.


Present in films, books and TV series, dragons awaken the curiosity of adults and children.  The audience will get to know the Battle Dragons, Dark Dragon, Earth Dragon, Green Dragon, Guardian Dragon, Red Dragon, Prismatic Dragon, Fangs Dragon and Blue Dragon. Throughout the exhibition, children can still take a special photo for BRL 20.


A kiosk will also sell dragon-themed souvenirs to anyone who wants to take home a souvenir of the event.
