Calling all inventors, artists and makers of awesomeness. The 2016 Atlanta Maker Faire has hit Decatur this weekend and it is bringing out the community’s creative best. Check out drone races and learn to become a pilot. Help with Georgia Tech’s urban beehive project. Watch demonstrations on glassblowing, blacksmithing, weaving and more. Experience virtual reality. The options are endless. All that is needed is a thirst for knowledge.
The second day of the Maker Faire begins at 12 p.m. and ends at 5 p.m. on Oct. 2. The Faire is free to attend. It takes place on the Decatur High School football field, the Ebster Gym and courtyard and parking lot, and the park on Trinity Place between Commerce Drive and Electric Avenue, the event’s website says.
