“Dinosaur George” Blasing, who drew large crowds to his traveling show at the Harker Heights Public Library this summer, will bring his Mini-Museum to the Killeen Civic and Conference Center, located at 3601 S. W.S. Young Drive, from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday.

The event is a joint effort between the Killeen Public Library and the Killeen Civic and Conference Center.

Dinosaur George has made appearances at the Killeen and Harker Heights libraries during the summer, bringing several artifacts with him as he gave a presentation to hundreds of children and adults. This time, however, he is bringing his traveling Mini-Museum.

Blasing’s Mini-Museum will include both a presentation and an exhibit. According to Blasing’s website, dinosaurgeorge.com, the exhibit will include several dinosaur skulls, skeletons, eggs, and other items. In addition, the event will be interactive, with scavenger hunts for the kids.

For instance, one of the items on the list might be to find a dinosaur in the exhibit that was a carnivore, or to find a dinosaur that lived in Texas.

Based in San Antonio, Blasing usually travels six days a week giving presentations all over North America.

He reserves his summer months to tour libraries throughout the state of Texas.

Besides being a public speaker, Blasing is also an author and television host.

“There’s something for every age. I think that’s why (the show) is so popular,” Blasing said in August.

Sunday’s event in Killeen is free and open to the public.

A gift shop will also be available.
