MARION -- It was the next best thing to Jurassic Park and the only danger was having too much fun.

The Dinosaur World LIVE tour stopped at the Marion Cultural and Civic Center last week, taking the stage to sellout crowd for a program that was both educational and fun.

Using animated dinos including the Microraptor and T-Rex, the show was a fun way to teach about the prehistoric animals, even including an interactive portion in the show as well as a meet and greet in the lobby after the performance.
