Rockford's Burpee Museum of Natural History is celebrating 25 years of PaleoFest, and you get to join in on all the fun this weekend with the kiddos.

I wish I was more into history as a kid because I feel like I'd be a fossil collector at this point in my life.  Sounds like a pretty relaxing, and unique, hobby to have!

If you love dinosaurs, enjoy rock collecting, or consider yourself a pro fossil digger, you'll have a roaring good time at Paleofest at Rockford's Burpee Museum.
