JUPITER, Fla. — There is no shortage of things for kids to do this weekend: it's action-packed with space selfies, The Sweet Corn Fiesta, a new Delray Beach experience, and dinosaurs roaring at the Science Center.

1) Dinosaurs return to Science Center - West Palm Beach

Dinosaur Revolution will open at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium on Saturday, April 24. The exhibit will give visitors an exciting in-depth look into dinosaurs by role-playing, missions, mazes, and more. Admission comes with entrance into the Science Center, $17.95 for adults, $13,95 for children ages (3-12) and kids under three are free.

“This powerful combination of role-play and study creates an unforgettable experience that will inspire older visitors to take a fresh look at this prehistoric topic and encourage young visitors to look to the future as they learn more about this fascinating subject,” said Kate Arrizza, President and CEO of the Science Center.

2) South Florida Sweet Corn Fiesta - West Palm Beach
Enjoy freshly harvested locally crown buttery corn and other summertime foods, children's rides, a Greenmarket, corn shucking contest, and live music. Plus the National Sweet Corn Eating Championship. Happening at the South Florida Fair Grounds on Sunday, April 25 from 11 a.m. 5 p.m. (the corn eating contest is at 3 p.m.)

3) Space Selfies - Palm Beach Gardens

Snap up your social media game with shooting stars, walking on the moon, or a Mission to Mars. The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex has teamed up with The Gardens Mall and they have created an "Out of This World" pop-up photo adventure. In addition, there are QR codes hidden in the venue that will provide guests with historical space facts. And you may have a chance to name a star. The attraction is located on the lower level near Saks Fifth Avenue. Entry costs $15 and proceeds go to Give Kids the World Village who sends critically ill kids and their families on vacation. Out of this World is open through May 16, Wednesday through Saturday from 12 p.m. - 7 p.m. and on Sundays during mall hours.

“Many families are eager to have hands-on learning experiences in a fun, safe environment,”
“This activation provides awe-inspiring information for every age group while helping to promote other tourism destinations in Florida like the Space Coast,” said Whitney Pettis Jester, Director of Marketing and Merchant Relations at The Gardens Mall.
