Paleofest teaches kids and adults about dinosaurs at Burpee Museum
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
The 18th annual Paleofest 2016 concluded Sunday at Rockford's Burpee Museum.
This family event teaches kids and adults about dinosaurs. Presentations, workshops and learning stations were set up throughout the museum.
Organizers said they had great turn-out all weekend long, bringing in thousands of people including guests from local communities, and some from far as Texas, New York and even Canada.
"We have a very unique event at Paleofest where it brings in science and the community, so it's a real science meets the street program," said Scott Williams, the Director of Science & Exhibits at Burpee Museum.
Paleofest has been going on since 1999 in Rockford.
