NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Dinosaurs were spotted in downtown Nashville Sunday afternoon.
No need to worry; this wasn't another 2020 phenomenon.
The T-Rex stampede is a yearly community tradition, where people dress up in dinosaur suits and walk across the pedestrian bridge together. Today was the event's 5th anniversary.
"Things can be a little heavy sometimes, and this is a nice light thing we can all do together," organizer Kristina James said.
Considering COVID-19 safety, she says the prehistoric costumes doubled as a way to keep people safe-- and at arms-length.
"These are pretty much hazmat suits anyway, so I think its the perfect time for it," James' husband Jonathan added.
It was a special stampede for the couple, whose 5-month-old son made an adorable T-Rex debut.
