Winnipeg man creates giant wintery dragon in his front yard

One Winnipeg resident hopes a wintery beast in his front yard might just bring him some good luck.

Tom Tran has sculpted a giant two-headed dragon out of snow in the front yard of his Kylemore Avenue home in Winnipeg.

“I just wanted to make something more difficult, more impressive, and I decided to make a two-headed dragon,” he told CTV News.

“Last year, I made a small one and my wife loved it, so this year I just wanted to make something more bigger.”

Tran, who is a 3D artist, said he sketched the dragon on the computer before he got bundled up and hit the snow outside. He said he would spend around 5 hours a day working on it. The whole sculpture, complete with eyes made out of Christmas decorations, took 10 days to complete.

This front yard is a horror show

Every September, Danny Petti’s front yard goes from green to gruesome.

Once the calendar flips, out come the demons. And skeletons. And — new this year — evil babies.

By the time he’s done filling his huge front lot, cars are slowing to take a peek at his “Sleepy Hollow Hideout.” Come Halloween night, he can barely keep up with all the visitors.

“Last year, there was over 2,000 people here,” he says. “It’s unbelievable. This whole street is jammed with cars.”

At 6971 Thorold Stone Rd., Petti’s pad has become a popular haunt for horror buffs the past decade. Even before he’s finished, people are parking at a nearby plaza to walk over and take it all in.

Several displays are working, belching out groans and screams as people walk by. Along the lengthy driveway are dolls covered in blood and gore. Closer to the house, a gigantic figure

“Took a break from drawing for a little while today. Got some sharks started,” Ramirez said in a weekend Facebook post which included several photographs of her creations.

The sharks, which are not native to Michigan, can be seen in Madison Heights, a suburb of Detroit — or just on the internet.
