Special Event

Back To School Weekend

August 10th & 11th, 202
9:30am - 4:30pm

Flamingo Gardens presents Back to School Weekend with Dinosaurs Around the World: The Great Outdoors, a captivating outdoor exhibit featuring 13 animatronic dinosaurs that come to life with incredibly realistic sound and lifelike movements. Travel back to the time before the continents as we know them existed, when lush landscapes covered Africa and Antarctica was green! Grab your prehistoric passport and discover how land bridges, volcanic activity, and plate tectonics allowed dinosaurs such as T. rex, Spinosaurus, Hadrosaur, and more to disperse all over the globe, giving each of today’s continents its own unique selection of these giant reptiles.

Back to School Weekend will include the opportunity to “excavate” fossils and see a movie short in the Gallery, about the evolution of “Dinosaurs Among Us,” or birds, and how they are truly modern-day dinosaurs.
