The summer weather has RSVP’d yes to the ROAR’ing dinosaur party taking place over the Victoria Day long weekend at Mississauga Celebration Square (MCS). Pep Rally is the official start to summer at the Square and what better way to celebrate than with a dinosaur, a robot and a confetti dance party.

You read that right. Prehistoric meets high-tech during this year’s festivities. From the MCS robot, a life-sized dinosaur named Russel T. Wrecks, and a dino petting zoo to a 25-foot prehistoric rock-climbing wall, you won’t just want to follow the Square’s Instagram stories – you need to be there to take it all in.

When the fatigue sets in from dancing to the beats dropped by DJ Andre 905 and digging in the Dino excavation pits, kids of all ages can take a seat for story time with Dot from CBC Kids.

Herbivore or carnivore, it doesn’t matter. The onsite food trucks will have something for everyone. Summer will be ready to go, so visitors can stay cool by splashing the day away in the dino-sized fountain.

The festivities take place from 12-4 p.m. on May 21 at Mississauga Celebration Square.
