Wednesday, September 11, 2013 • Posted September 15, 2013

The Fredericksburg Rockhounds are thrilled to announce that one of the largest traveling prehistoric exhibits in North American is coming to Fredericksburg! The Fredericksburg Rockhounds Club is bringing "Dinosaur George" and his "Museum in the Classroom" exhibit to the Pioneer Pavilion at Lady Bird Johnson Park. "Dinosaur George" Blasing is a self-taught paleontologist with more than 35 years of study and research. He recently brought the smaller version of his show to the Mason County Library; but, will have room in Fredericksburg to offer the full exhibit.

He has lectured in over 2800 museums, schools and public events and he has presented his exhibit to over two million students. He co-created, wrote and hosted a 12-part series on the History Channel called "Jurassic Fight Club." The exhibit includes an incredible display of dinosaur skulls, including one of the largest T-Rex skulls found on earth, a skull from a crocodile that grew longer than a school bus, a huge collection of saber-toothed tiger skulls and other unusual creatures from almost every time period and continent.

This one-day show is Saturday, September 28 at the Pioneer Pavilion in Lady Bird Johnson Park. Hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Admission is FREE, courtesy of the Fredericksburg Rockhounds Club. Please feel free to bring cameras and curiousity, and take the opportunity to visit with "Dinosaur George" in person!
