Sellers come from all over the world to meet buyers who who come from the tri-state area and beyond.
Dinosaurs Rock Kids Corner is the place where children can sluice for minerals, dig for fossils, crack geodes, mine for gems, and try their hand at metal detecting. Every kid who visits the Kids Corner will receive a Free Fossil. Plus, other activities and fossil & mineral giveaways by the friendly volunteers from eight local mineral societies, fossil clubs, lapidary associations, and Rutgers University Museum. All this takes place adjacent to the cafeteria.
