MIDDLEBURG HEIGHTS, Ohio — Have you ever wanted to stand beside a Tyrannosaurus rex or gaze at a Stegosaurus?

On Saturday and Sunday, June 12-13, the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds hosted Dino Stroll, a tour featuring lifelike and life-size animatronic dinosaurs.

The tour featured move than 75 dinosaurs standing over 25 feet tall and spanning over 60 feet long, with creatures from the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods throughout the fairgrounds.

“Being able to come here and see how big they are, puts it in perspective. Sitting at home playing with toys doesn’t really do it justice,” said Dimitris Fournaris.

Dinosaurs throughout the tour had moving heads, necks, tails, wings, eyes and mouths with breathing movements and synchronized sounds that brought them to life in an exciting family-friendly event.

Dino Stroll has also partnered with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank to host a food drive and encouraged guests to bring canned or non-perishable times with them to the event where they were collected at the entrance and donated to families in the Cleveland areas facing food insecurity.
