Creative individuals are in Lafayette, showcasing their passion at the city’s Mini Maker Faire.

From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these “makers” to present their hobbies, experiments, or projects.

This is the second year of the Lafayette Mini Maker Faire. It’s a collaboration between the Lafayette Public Library and Lafayette Science Museum.

Until 3 p.m., makers will be set up at booths throughout the museum and outside along Congress Street between Jefferson and Polk streets. They will feature a mixture of hands-on activities, demonstrations, performances and handmade items for sale.

“Maker Faire is part science fair, part festival,” said museum director Kevin Krantz. “It’s a unique concept that showcases science, technology, art and craftsmanship in a fun and exciting way.”
