DERBY, Kan. (KSNW) – Field Station: Dinosaurs plans to reopen for the 2020 season on June 1, which is International Dinosaur Day.
The park plans a full day of celebrating, including:
- Unveil a new mural by noted paleo-artist Christopher DiPiazza
- Present the world premiere of a live musical show, “The Great Dinosaur Whodunit!” featuring The Mighty T-Rex
- Introduce all new T-Rex Games
There will also be a pre-opening event that is free to the public on May 30 and 31. The park said visitors can watch as paleo-artist Chris DiPiazza and local artist Rachel Downs collaborate to create a giant prehistoric mural for the Buried Treasures: Kansas Underground exhibit.
The two-day event will take place in the Field Station’s Base Camp area just outside the park gates. It will feature appearances by The Mighty T-Rex, games, songs and some surprises.
Officials said they will follow state and local guidelines for social distancing as long as COVID-19 continues. They ask people who are feeling ill to stay home.
