Last week, dinosaurs were seen entering the Minnesota State Fairgrounds (with a little help from friends).

For the first time ever, Dinosaur Adventure Drive-Thru is coming to the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. Following news that the State Fair will not happen this year, organizers have been delighting fair-goers with announcements of revised, new events and activities. Last week, they announced a unique drive-thru experience featuring 16 different food vendors, activities and entertainment along a 1.5 mile route.

On Friday, Dinosaur Adventure announced on Facebook that it was bringing its own drive-thru experience to the Minnesota State Fairgrounds for the first time ever.

"Meet just a few of the 80 dinosaurs you will see. Our 40-foot T-Rex! , 30 foot tall Allosaurus and more - all from the comfort of your vehicle."

The dinosaur drive-thru is available for just two weekends starting July 31 through August 9. Dates are:

July 31, 2020
August 1, 2020
August 2, 2020
August 6, 2020
August 7, 2020
August 8, 2020
August 9, 2020

The entire experience features 80 dinosaurs including a 40 foot T-Rex, 30 foot Brachiosaurus, Triceratops, Velociraptor, and more...all from the comfort of your vehicle.

Drive-thru tours run at various times of the day, start at $40 per vehicle and can be purchased here. Additional events still set to take place on the Fairgrounds include the food parade and the Fine Art Exhibition. For those who's highlight of the State Fair is drinking from an official Minnesota State Fair plastic cup, the Fair is also selling sleeves of cups.
