Growing up I loved dinosaurs, and wish I would have had something like Jurassic Quest in my area. This event is also coming at the perfect time seeing as though the final installment of the Jurassic Park movies just came out, so if the kids are talking about dinos nonstop, this might be the perfect thing for them.

The QCCA Expo Center is going back in time and will be the place to be next weekend between Friday, July 22, and Sunday, July 24.

If you know a dino lover young, or old, this family-friendly event will be perfect for them, and it's in our own backyard right here in the QC.

About Jurassic Quest

This is a great way for the kids to hang out with dinosaurs here in the Quad Cities. Jurassic Quest is offering a tone of unique fun. Their website reads,

You're gonna need a bigger weekend. Our world-famous, life-size dinosaurs are meticulously painted and animated to be realer-than-real. Whether you're 3 or 103, this is a one-of-a-kind experience you'll never forget.

There are also some featured creatures including the Spinosaurus, T-Rex, and the 50-foot-long megalodon.

Other featured activities include:

  • Dino Ride! That's right you can jump on a dino’s back.
  • Bounce Houses
  • Dino Crafts
  • Digging For Fossils
  • See Baby Dinos. They are kinda cute!
  • Walking With dinosaurs. If you've ever wanted to see one up close, now you can.
