COLORADO SPRINGS — Two people will receive $500 rewards for their tips that helped lead to the recovery of "Deeno" a dinosaur sculpture taken from The Market at Spring Creek in Colorado Springs.

The owners of the marketplace on Circle Drive say the dino was anonymously returned and they are planning an event to celebrate the homecoming.

Deeno will be reinstalled on a concrete base, that should secure his place more solidly. There will be a community reintroduction as well for Deeno during a special food truck event on Friday, August 9th from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

The event will be open to the public.

Right now it's unclear who took the sculpture in the first place and it's not being revealed where the dinosaur was returned, only that he is now back home with the center's other unique sculptures.
