Dinosaur descends on Gainsborough

Prehistoric times are upon us as dinosaur Pete is back stomping around Gainsborough Farmers’ and Craft Market.

On Saturday 11 May, meet Pete on his scheduled walkabouts at 10am, 11am and 1pm.

Walkabouts will last for approximately 15 to 20 minutes as Pete is still only an adolescent and needs to snooze to get his energy back! Meet Pete’s baby dino friends whilst he is napping.

Regular market traders will be there offering the best in local, fresh, homemade and handmade produce, as well as the antiques fair to dive into a treasure trove of collectables and more.

Nicola Marshall, Towns Manager at West Lindsey District Council, said: “Dinosaur Pete was such a big hit last time he stomped his way to town and I’m so pleased that he is returning for the children and adults!

“It’s events like these that bring the whole community together and thanks to the UK Shared Prosperity Fund we are able to put on extra activities for local residents that are free.”
