This Week in History

Millions of years of history came to life at Philips Arena on September 5-9, 2007 when dinosaurs invaded the arena! The spectacular Walking with Dinosaurs: The Live Experience tour wowed crowds with fifteen life-size mechanical dinosaurs operated by puppeteers. The largest of these dinos was a brachiosaurus, measuring 36 ft tall and 56 ft long from nose to tail; that’s nearly seven times the height of the average American! This tour was an adaptation of a six part series that was originally aired on BBC in 1999, and later on the Discovery Channel in the United States.
