Dinosaur State Park Day Celebrated the 1966 Discovery of the Tracks
Highlights of Our Celebration
In August 2019, Dinosaur State Park celebrated the 53rd anniversary of the discovery of the tracks with a party featuring a wide range of free activities for visitors of all ages.Thousands of visitors joined in the fun. Attendance for the day broke our records of the event held nearly every year since 1996. This year, there were many games, crafts, educational programs and prizes for the visitors. Children, parents and grandchildren were encouraged to experiment with arts and crafts, watch live animal shows, and visit the indoor and outdoor features of the park.
All activities were free, except for the Mining Sluice, which had a materials' fee. Additional programs and films were held in the Exhibit Center which had no admission charge for this special day.
