Montreal's Jurassic Fest At Quartier DIX30 Has Been Cancelled (UPDATED)
The mall said the "external producer did not meet [its] standards and internal procedures."
UPDATE: This event has been cancelled. In a statement, Quartier DIX30 said that "considering that the event proposed by an external producer did not meet the standards and internal procedures of our organization, we confirm that we are ending the collaboration with this promoter and therefore the Jurassic Fest Montreal event will not take place on the Quartier DIX30 site."
EARLIER: This October, a festival with life-sized animatronic dinosaurs is coming to the Montreal area — and if you've always wanted to feel like you were in Jurassic Park then this is your chance.
Jurassic Fest Montreal promises to bring 19 "moving, breathing, blinking and roaring" creatures to Quartier DIX30 in Brossard from October 22 to 30, taking us back in time to the era when dinosaurs roamed the Earth.

The exhibition will be an opportunity for you to get up close and personal with several species of dinosaurs, such as a 15-metre Tyrannosaurus Rex and 10-metre Triceratops.
Presented in a tour format, you will learn about the history of the dinosaurs, including their extinction, see their fossils and experience how it feels to walk among these prehistoric reptiles.
