Top Picks for This Weekend

Bring a rock to have identified, then go on an outdoor exploration and see how fossils are made.

 

 

 

Bring the family outdoors for a good old-fashioned seasonal bash Sat. complete with games, Victorian dress-up, hands-on activities and a car show at the “In the Good Old Summertime Festival” at Schwenksville, PA’s Pennypacker Mills. Don’t forget to get your pic taken in Victorian garb before you leave!
