I heard about Fossil Fest from Five Star Subaru, which is one of the sponsors. They’re always doing fun stuff in the community and I’m pretty sure Fossil Fest is going to be a lot of fun!

Starting this weekend, Grapevine Parks & Recreation is hosting Fossil Fest at the Grapevine Botanical Gardens. If you know someone who is dino-obsessed, (or if you saw Jurassic Park as a kid) you definitely need to check this out! There are all kinds of cool ways to learn about dinosaurs including digging up fossils and taking home a dinosaur from the egg hatchery.

Fossil Fest is Saturday, September 9th from 9am-3pm and is a free event for the whole family. The Jurassic Gardens exhibit runs through September 24th and you can purchase tickets here.
