The Sinclair Oil Dino is making his way across America for the 91st Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Black Hills FOX Reporter Katrina Lim shows us what he was up to at his pit stop in Rapid City.

Families lined up this morning at the Sinclair gas station on Eglin Street to take a picture with the 20 foot long, inflatable Sinclair Oil Dino.

The fiberglass Dino, the inflatable Dino, and the mascot Dino started their journey in Pendleton, Oregon and are trekking across the country to New York City.

Wayco Bailey says, "So that's kind of the point of having these three dinosaurs out here. We want to get some attraction. We're actually giving away a free trip to New York City for the 2018 Thanksgiving Parade and so you just have to sign up. There's a few competitions going on our social media pages on Twitter and on Instagram."

Ralph Fitzner used to work for Sinclair in the 60s.
