Dinosaur show amazes children in Wausau

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- History came to life in Wausau this weekend.

"Discover the Dinosaurs" brought its kid-friendly combination museum and play area to Marathon Park.

Organizers say about 5,000 people came to see the large electronic dinosaurs.

They say children enjoy getting up close to the dinosaurs because they seem so real, but there's also educational value to the display.

"We go back 60 million years ago, so 60 million years is what we wanted to try to bring up front," said Tracy Beasley, the show's manager. "We have a lot of educational posters, a lot of questions, a lot of signs."

If you missed it this weekend, show organizers say they'll be back next year.
