Event: Annual Spring Fair & “Rock for All Ages”


Annual Spring Fair & Rock for All Ages

Saturday, May 12, 2017

Fun for the whole family!  The Bristol & Meriden Gem and Mineral Clubs are collaborating for this family-friendly event by presenting “Rocks for All Ages.” Have some fun learning about earth science. There will be lots of hands-on activities about minerals and rocks, how they form and why they are useful in everyday life. See the clues that the dinosaurs left behind, and how volcanoes impact us today. Also, step into the Lapidary Center at the Nature Center and see how rocks are transformed into art. Activities and exhibits by Bristol Rotary Club, Bristol Garden Club and other vendors.  The Bristol Garden Club will also be hosting a plant sale.
