Mini Maker Faire continues annual tradition

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Engineers, builders, enthusiasts and all sorts of creators are in downtown Meridian this weekend.

It's all for the annual Meridian Mini Maker Faire. The educational "show and tell" event is family friendly with neat places for the kids to build and learn how things are built. It is being held at Soule" Steam Works on 4th Street. Organizers say this is the only place to see all of these inventions and to learn how they work.

"I think everyone had a great time. I saw so many people leave with a smile and people thanked us for having the event here and I think it's something that we really want to do again and it's been that way for all three times we've done it," Mini Maker Faire producer Greg Hatcher says.

Hatcher says they have decided to cancel the children's faire for Sunday due to the weather coming in.
