Thought I'd point out this big event that's headed to the N.C. State Fairgrounds later this month.
Discover the Dinosaurs aims to "create a fun environment of learning and activity that explores the wonderment and mystery of our pre-historic past," according to the website.
The event includes an exhibit of 8 to 10 prehistoric scenes complete with special lighting, sounds effects, animatronics and fog. Visitors are encouraged to touch some of the non-moving dinosaurs in the exhibit.
Other attractions include a Dino Dig; Dino Theater; Dino Den, designed for younger kids; some dinosaur-themed rides; inflatables; gem and fossil panning; and more (including dinosaur-themed mini golf).
It's Feb. 22 to Feb. 24 at the fairgrounds in Raleigh. This isn't free. Tickets are $17 for adults; $12 for kids ages 2 to 11 and seniors 65 and up; and free for kids ages one and under. The rides, mini golf, inflatables, gem and fossil mining and face painting each cost another $6, according to the website.
Check the event's Facebook page for feedback from other parents, who have seen the show elsewhere.
