How the Dinosaur Stomp got started:

Dylan is a long-time fan of Dinosaur’s so in 2012 the event was born with his love at heart, in the first year there were over 450 registered participants, and during 2017 are shooting for even more participants to help support the foundation and to have a fun day afterwards.

So please make plans to join us to support Dylan and to get your Dinosaur Stomp On!!!
