You’ll see a 23-foot animated T-Rex, some cool reptiles with Animal Adventures, inflatables, magicians, face painting, puppeteers, life size dinosaurs… and maybe you’ll even spot a Lawnasaurus? Free and fun for all ages, we’ll have four different cornhole tournaments with Wicked Cornhole and some pretty RAWRsome prizes.
