The 14th annual Fall Rocks celebration returns to the Missouri Mines State Historic Site Powerhouse Museum in Park Hills, Missouri, on Saturday October 27 from 5-8 p.m. Join the Missouri Mines State Historic Site and The Doe Run Company (Doe Run) for a fun-filled evening of activities that teach children about Missouri’s natural resources. The family-friendly event is free and open to the public.

Hard hat decorating, cookie mining, toothpaste making, and minerals trivia are just a few of the activities that kids and parents can look forward to this year. Free refreshments will also be provided throughout the event. The Powerhouse Museum will be open for guests to explore exhibits that teach about the history of mining technology.

Missouri minerals, including lead, are crucial to a modern society. Everyday activities, like starting a car, require lead. Lead batteries store energy from solar panels and wind farms, and provide backup power during storms and other disasters that impact the power grid.

The Missouri Mines State Historic Site is located at 4000 State Highway 32 in Park Hills, which is on the south side of Highway 32 at the Flat River Drive overpass, 1.5 miles west of U.S. Highway 67.
