Get ready for the summer’s biggest indoor/outdoor event at the Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville this week.
RockFest is this Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. each day.
You will see rare and exotic jewelry, ancient fossils, and rocks from around the world that you can purchase for your own collection.
According to Jose Santamaria at Tellus said the event began 26 years ago at the Weinman Mineral Museum as an informal get together for collectors to swap rock specimens.Lucky visitors will win door prizes every hour and there are plenty of activities.
RockFest is also a great opportunity to have your own rocks identified.
Admission is $14 for adults, $10 for children and $12 for seniors and free for Tellus members.
