Cornell, be warned: raucous architecture students and a large and fanciful creature known as a “dragon” will parade through campus today from 1 to 3 p.m. as part of the annual Dragon Day festivities, resulting in limited vehicular access and traffic.
Beginning at 12:15 p.m., access to East Avenue from University Avenue will be restricted to bus traffic only until the beginning of the parade.
For the duration of the parade, access along the dragon’s route will be restricted.
Bus routes may be delayed or rerouted.
To prevent crossing paths with this fearsome beast, avoid intersecting with the dragon’s route.
The parade will leave Rand Hall around 1 p.m., traveling east on University Avenue.
The dragon will then turn right, in a southerly direction, on East Avenue. There will then be another right, west, on Campus Road, and a final turn right onto the South Central walkway through Ho Plaza.
The dragon will enter the Arts Quad between Uris and Olin libraries, making way to its fiery demise on the south side of Sibley Hall.
The Cornell Police and Environmental Health and Safety in a release of the route ask the community to enjoy the festivities in a safe way.
“Please don’t engage in behavior that might result to injury to yourself and others,” the release stated.
