The Maker Faire is coming to the park. We will be deeply impacted by this event. We are a participating museum, so we will share 90% of the profits with nine other museums. The question is….will there be any profit? This is a massive event with over 200 makers INSIDE the museums….and I don’t even know how many outside activities there will be throughout the park.
A bamboo bike builder will be inside our space. Kinda cool.
Outside things that won’t fit into a museum include….
Gregory the Giraffe who met Obama a few years ago when the White House hosted a Maker Faire. He moves around via remote control. Gregory….not Obama.
The Cupcake Cars! These are always a big hit every year at Burning Man.
In the parking lot in front of our building, a game of Battle Pond has been set up.
It’s a grown up version of Battleship. You use remote controls to “sink” other boats.
They were filling this when I left yesterday. Holy shit. The jury is still out on this one.
It’s going to be super busy. We are fully staffed. We are also loading up with extra volunteers. We are catering lunch to make it easy for people to work a shift.
So this will be my life over the weekend. It’s never dull.
