Families will have the opportunity to feed, water and play with a variety of creatures straight from the prehistoric era. The Dinosaur Petting Zoo is a unique, visually stunning experience that allows children and adults to travel back in time. The artists behind these stunning creatures are Australian-based Erth - Visual & Physical Inc. Founded in 1990 in Ballarat Victoria, Erth has consistently been creating art for the public domain since its inception and is recognized today as an innovator of physical and visual theatre worldwide. Erth’s goal is to provide audiences with eye popping visual experiences by combining a truly fantastic aesthetic with performance, using large-scale puppets, stilts, inflatable environments and aerial techniques to create its productions. Erth tours the globe extensively. Erth’s Dinosaur Petting Zoo is made possible in part by a grant from the Jean Yorke Memorial Fund, a fund of Central Indiana Community Foundation
