Dinos Replace Peanuts in the Twin Cities this Summer!

My family along with thousands of others searched for a parade of Peanuts Characters for five straight years. First we searched for Snoopy throughout the city of St. Paul in the summer of 2000. The next spring in 2001, we were at it again finding Charlie Brown all around the town. During the next two summers, we looked for Lucy and Linus in Ramsey County parks, street corners and even at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds. The Peanuts parade ended in 2004 with Twin Citians asking “Where’s Woodstock?”, as we searched for Snoopy and his little yellow friend on decorated doghouses for one final summer. It was a tremendously fun way to honor the late Charles Schultz and tour our beautiful capitol city!

This summer, after a two year hiatus, the plastic statues will once again be gracing the corners of Twin City streets. Only this year the characters are not Charles Schultz creations. Get your walking shoes and cameras ready because starting in May 2007 expertly decorated dinosaurs will be invading the city streets of St. Paul and parks of Minneapolis. (Yes, this year Minneapolis has joined in the fun!)

The event is to commemorate one of my family’s favorite places, the
Science Museum of Minnesota’s 100th Anniversary. The public is invited to a “paint off” in mid-May at the St. Paul RiverCentre as the artists transform the plain white statues into works of art. For more information visit
