WHAT: The event dinosaur fans have been waiting for finally returns to Orlando Science Center’s Annual Fossil Fest Four! This Scienterrific Saturday is a celebration of dinosaurs, fossils, paleontology and all things prehistoric.
In the shadows of dinosaur skeletons in the DinoDigs exhibit, join the Florida Fossil Hunters as they share specimens unearthed on Florida expeditions. Marvel at special DinoDigs activities and experiences, and meet some of the world’s last living dinosaurs with the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey. And look out for a special appearance by DEXTER the Dinosaur from T-REX at Downtown Disney!
The Dr. Phillips CineDome will submerge guests into prehistoric times with Sea Monsters, and the Science Center’s Dr. Dare’s Lab is transformed into a PaleoArt Workshop where accomplished Dino Sculptor Jesse Mars helps guests create their own elaborate dinosaur sculptures to take home! Paleontologists and enthusiasts from all over the state will gather in for a Day of Dinosaurs and Fossil Fun.
PHOTO OPPS: Activities include a professional dinosaur art workshop, make your own coffee ground fossil, meet living raptors-an Eagle and a Falcon, learn to start your own fossil collection in your own backyard, and swim with sea monsters in the most bizarre water races this side of the Jurassic!
