The San Mateo County Fairgrounds transformed into a hotbed for creativity over the weekend, playing host to the enormously popular do-it-yourself festival Maker Faire.

The festival offers hobbyists, engineers, and anyone with an imagination a chance to show-off their creations — from dizzying pieces of art to solar-powered inventions.

More than 100,000 attendees turned out to explore the inventions, which included everything from the practical to the downright bizarre. The festival is in its eighth year, with more than 900 exhibitors signing on to show off their projects in this year’s event.

Organizers call their event “the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth.”
