Amid protests by dismayed locals, it has been announced that Llandrindod’s Lake Park will soon be home to a ‘fire-breathing’ water dragon, RBB has learned. “We wanted to shake things up” explained the organiser, R. Herring, describing how the metal structure will soon be gushing red and floodlit by night. “The Lake needs something to excite younger visitors, not just birdlife and carp fishing, and we think this is just the ticket,” continued Herring.
Protesters are already calling for the colour to be blue, not red, but Herring is insistent. “Dying water blue is just not viable, and besides, my favourite colour is red.”
“And if it proves successful, we will introduce Excalibur boat trips through dry ice ‘mist’ to a new medieval theme restaurant on the island.”
The switch on is scheduled for 1st April, with fireworks and local band, Don’t Believe What You Read, providing the entertainment.
