The in­ter­est and an­tic­i­pa­tion sur­round­ing Erth’s Di­nosaur Zoo has been amaz­ing. David Mar­shall

A trail of big di­nosaur footprints were left be­hind at the Harvey Recre­ation and Cul­tural Cen­tre on Tues­day fol­low­ing a unique per­for­mance from Erth’s Di­nosaur Zoo.

Af­ter roam­ing around the town in the morn­ing, the di­nosaurs per­formed to school groups through­out the day be­fore mak­ing their way over to the cen­tre for an evening show.

An au­di­ence of 950 were wowed by the life-like di­nosaur pup­pets as they got up close and per­sonal with the crea­tures that once roamed free around the world.

The show, which has been per­formed in the UK, USA and Ja­pan, came to Harvey as part of a re­gional tour and was aimed at bring­ing the sci­ence of pa­le­on­tol­ogy to young au­di­ences.

“The in­ter­est and an­tic­i­pa­tion sur­round­ing Erth’s Di­nosaur Zoo has been amaz­ing,” cen­tre man­ager David Mar­shall said.

“Peo­ple have come from all around the Peel and South West re­gion for this unique ex­pe­ri­ence.”

The zoo will be mak­ing its way to Raven­sthorpe later this af­ter­noon to con­tinue the re­gional tour.
