Children’s Festival 2017: Dye-nosaur Gardens

Where wonder blooms to life

Imagining a prehistoric garden where dinosaurs roamed

BLACK programmed the Gardens by the Bay’s annual Children’s Festival for the first time with the Dye-Nosaur Gardens, an imaginative habitat where adventures take place in a colourful prehistoric garden. The highlight of the festival were the 11 larger-than-life animatronic dinosaur sculptures that moved and roared, nestled within the Supertree Grove. They were complemented with a program of performances, terrarium making, fossil excavation workshops, hunt trails and carnival rides and games.

Shared by the media and members of the public as ‘real’ and likened to the action-packed scenes of Jurassic Park, the Dye-Nosaur Gardens was a unique experience in which visitors could get close to giant dinosaurs, while being introduced to the ecosystem and flora and fauna of the Gardens by the Bay.
