But then the weather forecast came in: rain. And boy, did it! We arrived in Tulsa right around 9:30 a.m. We had just enough time to make one unloading trip to our tent site before it started to pour. We finished unloading in the rain, threw a tarp over everything, and eventually got the tent up so we could at least have some shelter (miraculously, we're still smiling). But by this time we were soaked. My jeans were wet for hours! At least I had the forethought to grab my wellies!
There were so many cool exhibitors that stuck it out and braved the rain. There were 3D printers, robots, beer brewers, wood carvers, instrument makers, a buffalo fiber spinner, laser artists, and SO many more. It was a really cool place to geek out over lots of different things!
Oh, and there were mini donuts...
Eventually the sun came out (before it set), and we had a wonderful evening. The organizers and volunteers of the Maker Faire were outstanding. Seriously. I had a great time, and I'd do again next year!
