Dinosaur Gardens wraps season, teases things to come

OSSINEKE, Mich. — The Dinosaur Gardens are now closed for the season. But they went out with a big celebration.

People lined up the highway on Saturday for the Dinosaur Gardens’ third annual “Fall–O–Ween.” Families walked the trail and trick–or–treated with various local groups, from businesses to churches.

Fittingly, the kids’ most common costumes seemed to be dinosaurs and superheroes.

Organizer Shannon Vivero said the event’s become so popular, that not even bad weather will turn people away.

“It downpoured for, probably about 10 minutes… We’ve had people lined up since 3:00 PM today.”

The event also marks the end of the business season for the gardens, which will re–open next May.

Co–owner Gary Stephan told WBKB some fresh dinos are on the way, so be on the lookout.
