We just went to the Kalamazoo Rock Club annual show. This is the 3rd or 4th time we have gone and again we had an amazing time!! The adults were just $3 and the kids were FREE. Our oldest had so much fun playing all the games like The Gold Mine! (Mine for gems, fossils & “gold”) and Wheel of Fortune where his prizes were wonderful rock specimens. The games were anywhere from 50 cents to a dollar to play. The money went for a great cause, geology scholarships.
They also had a kids activity room that was FREE to do. Our oldest made a rock picture frame, paper weight, painted rock friend, necklace and polished a petoskey stone. The kids room alone was worth the adult price of admission!!

I hope our adventure encourages you to google rock shows in your state and see what kind of fun you can have!!
