Dragons (and Game of Thrones) Are Taking Over City Hall

It's part of a publicity stunt to promote the TV show's DVD launch

Breaking news! A dragon has landed at City Hall.

Ok, not really, but humor us or any Game of Thrones fans out there for a minute. HBO announced yesterday that a dragon will crash into Dilworth Park at City Hall tonight as part of the DVD/Blu-Ray launch of Game of Thrones, season 5.

We're not making this up.#GameofThrones Chris Miano stopped by Dilworth Park #philly for #selfie with display Wednesday .@phillydotcom

The rest of the day Dilworth Park will be the site of the dragon crash, with mock broken benches, torn up concrete, and dismantled light poles on the scene.

At 8:15 p.m., there will be a 3D animated show of the dragon taking flight across the city.

Philly is one of six cities that the Game of Thrones dragon is visiting. Here it is flying "over" the New York Public Library the other night.

You can catch Philly's dragon spectacle tonight at Dilworth Park at 8:15 p.m. The 20-minute show is free.
