"Our expert team is working closely with museums and bringing in exhibits that are educational, as well as fun and so there's an opportunity for them for kids to dig for fossils to go through and look for dinosaur fossils," said Chorus.

"Numbers-wise the [2022] fair was good. We, we have we were a little bit down from the [2020] fair, which was pre-pandemic so our attendance was a little bit down but it was much better than we anticipated," Chorus said.
