ROANOKE, Va. – Ever wondered what it's like to walk among living, breathing dinosaurs? Well, get ready because the next-closest thing is coming to Roanoke!

This weekend, Jurassic Quest, the largest and most realistic dinosaur exhibition, will be happening at the Berglund Center. Jurrasic Quest has collaborated with leading paleontologists to replicate more than 80 life-size, animatronic dinosaurs that will be on display for guests to interact with and take pictures with. Be on the look out, however, because the baby dinosaurs in particular love to play jokes on unsuspecting guests and you may find one nibbling on your shirt or stealing the hat off your head.

There will also be attractions and activities for dinosaur fans of all ages. Guests can dig up fossils like real paleontologists, find their way through inflatable mazes and even ride on the back of a T-Rex or a Carnotaurus. For younger guests, there will be a dinosaur petting zoo, crafts and face painting.

The event is happening 3 p.m.- 8 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m.-8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
