For the past century, a dragon has haunted the town of Melbourne, soaring over it by night and lighting the sky with bursts of flame. Locals have tried to slay him, but none of them have succeeded?hence this year's Dragon Festival, a two-day celebration with an ulterior motive. The fighter who proves best in the games will have to face down the dragon once and for all.

At least, so the legend goes. But even if Gedeon turns out to be a myth, the festival is real, blending elements of Renaissance Faires with pieces of Highland Games. As Celtic tunes and live performances fill the air with music, revelers try their hand at games from classic cornhole to "vegetable justice," in which they pelt a stockade-bound wretch with tomatoes and cabbages. Artisans showcase their wares at a variety tables, meanwhile, displays of old-timey crafts, such as blacksmithing and welding, give visitors glimpses of another era. As though that weren't enough excitement, acrobats, stilt-walkers, sword battles, jousting knights, and fire breathers stroll through the crowd, adding a surreal touch to the proceedings?which benefit the Save Dragon Point Foundation.

Strolling the marble floors of Premiere Theaters Oaks Stadium 10, moviegoers in July 2012 saw something odd beyond the entryway’s stone columns: Batman’s motorcycle from The Dark Knight. Displayed to raise even more anticipation for the trilogy’s conclusion, the prop was the most obvious example of film coming alive at Premiere Theaters, though not the only one. 3D images pop from select Oaks Stadium screens, while the latest digital picture and sound coalesce during immersive Hollywood films. Relax during every feature in tiered rocking seats with retractable armrests and ample room to stretch out.

17-time Grammy Award winner Tony Bennett and his wife, Susan, host the All-Star Tennis Event, which combines athletic feats and charitable deeds during an intimate, star-studded day. Throughout the afternoon, a round-robin tournament pairs paramount tennis players for battle, including top-ranked Novak Djokovic, former No. 1 Ana Ivanovic, and world-class tandem Bob and Mike Bryan. Rather than hiding in the hopper of a nearby ball machine, tennis fans can assemble in general-admission seats, nibbling hors d'oeuvres and sipping champagne between cheers. VVIP guests can cherish the outing long after the final ace kicks up clay, with memorabilia signed by players and celebrities in attendance, ideal for display on mantels or for bartering with discerning golden retrievers.
