    Let your imagination run wild as you travel back in time along a half-mile nature trail with ten life-size animatronic dinosaurs. During the 14th Annual Dinosaurs Live! Life-Size Animatronic Dinosaurs exhibit, these animatronic dinosaurs will move and roar, providing an experience sure to captivate visitors. This exhibit will also offer interesting facts about both herbivorous and carnivorous dinosaurs. Children and the young at heart will also have the opportunity to play on stationary baby dinosaurs, a photo-op Tyrannosaurus rex and a photo op Pachyrhinosaurus. This year’s exhibit will also a feature an outdoor hadrosaur fossil dig to inspire future paleontologists. The Dinosaurs Live! exhibit trail is jogging-stroller friendly (umbrella strollers are not recommended), giving families and friends a unique, exciting and educational activity to experience together.

    September 2, 2019, 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM @ E.J. Wills Gastropub

    E.J. Wills has renewed its partnership with KLAK radio (97.5) and the MISD Athletic Department to host the 2019 season of the MISD Football Coaches Show. Sponsored this year by two family owned local businesses—Blue Ribbon Roofing and Charred 380—the live radio broadcast, centered on McKinney ISD’s three incredible football teams, returns to the restaurant with a more in-depth, one hour format. The live show will broadcast every Monday night from 8/26 – 11/4 (with the exception of one show on 9/2) from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. Zach Bigley, the new voice of MISD football, will anchor most shows. Guests may ask questions, learn about tactics against upcoming rivals, and hear the coaches debrief prior games. There will be give-a-ways; special guest anchors—community leaders, professional players, and sports enthusiasts—and spirit nights for each of the three schools. Come for the show, enjoy “gourmet grub in a pub,” and stay to watch the Monday Night NFL games.
