Getting to MakerFaire

Getting to MakerFaire

Things are going great guns at the fairgrounds and the excitement is palpable. It promises to be an off-the-hook weekend, maybe even several hooks! If you’re coming to the Faire, to make sure your travels to and from are not *too* exciting, before you head out, make sure to check the travel info on the Faire site (car | rail, bus, bike) and follow us on our Twitter traffic channel @FaireTraffic. It will include info on both up-to-the-moment traffic conditions and parking info.

Also, check out Becky’s Ask MAKE column from a few weeks ago for useful tips on prepping for the Faire in general. A little pre-Faire planning can really make a difference in having a more enjoyable experience.
