its not the circus. Here is a list of MakerFaire events. You go because you see whats new, whats gotten bigger, whats gotten smaller, old friends, new friends you didn't yet know were friends. See which exhibitor has the biggest lines. Whats hot. How kids look at whats new. Really good food trucks. Great speakers. Can I say the epicenter of those who would rather be at the greatest show and tell rather then the ballgame. Take your kids, take the kid in yourself.
