Homer the Dragon

Untitled Document



Meet everyone's favorite mascot!

On April 15, 1989 the City of Charlotte and the Carolinas changed forever.  That date marked the birth of Charlotte's craziest, greenest, and most loved citizen... Homer the Dragon!  Homer has been delighting fans at Knights Castle for over 20 years.  He's not hard to spot at the stadium, always entertaining the crowd, throwing t-shirts and other prizes to fans, delivering pizzas during the game, or just bopping people with his tail.

When the Knights are not playing games at the Castle, Homer can be found all over the Carolinas. Homer makes countless appearances at schools, hospitals, and charitable organizations every year.  He can also be spotted at parades and community events all around the area.  Every now and then you will even see him at other sporting events or out and about in Uptown Charlotte.  Homer's favorite activity is to show up and crash birthday parties to deliver birthday wishes... and to gobble up cake!
