HOLIDAYMAKERS and Isle of Wight residents have been invited to become part of the 'world’s largest dinosaur.’
At 2pm on Sunday at Appley Beach, Ryde, people are invited in their hundreds to form a human Pelosaurus shape.
The event will be filmed from the air and used to help promote the Island as the Dinosaur Capital of Great Britain.
Backed by tourism organisation Visit Isle of Wight, it is being organised by Roger Crouch who for the past five years has masterminded Pirate Day in Hastings, which set the record for the biggest gathering of pirates.
In 2011 Roger also created the largest skull and crossbones — a feat which drew attention around the world.
Roger said: "I urge people to come and be part of the world’s first attempt to create an unforgettable dinosaur image on the Isle of Wight and they’ll be able to say: 'I was there!’"
Goodleaf Tree Climbing will offer climbing with dinosaurs, there will be dinosaur activities courtesy of Blackgang Chine, FaT Samba will play, there will be talks from local fossil experts, plus games and prizes provided by the Rotary Club of Ryde.
There will even be a "best dressed dinosaur" competition, although dressing up as a dinosaur is not required in order to attend the event.
