▶️ Jurassic Quest interactive dinosaur show at Deschutes Co. Fairgrounds this weekend

Dinosaurs are roaming the Earth at the the Deschutes County Fairgrounds this weekend for the family-friendly Jurassic Quest. It features dozens of dinosaur exhibits, including animatronic dinos.

“Jurassic Quest is a full, national touring dinosaur exhibit that has about 165 million years of dinosaur knowledge all the way from the Triassic through Jurassic periods,” said Dino Trainer Isaiah Valbrun.

Walk the different lands where these creatures roamed the earth get an up close look at their big teeth, sharp claws, fur, feathers and scales. Many of the dinosaurs are animated.

“We have triceratops and a t-rex. We have some velociraptors and raptors as well. And we also have our eight-foot tall Utah raptor, Diego. He walks around the exhibit and says ‘Hi’ and you can also train him. So we have a bunch of different ranges of dinosaurs from height and weight and age and all that,” Valbrun said.
