What is a Maker Faire?

Have you ever been to a Maker Faire? 
What was the most impressive project you saw?

First thing, what is a "Maker Faire"? Thanks to Google, I found out that a Maker Faire is
Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. 
 I discovered that their was a Maker Faire recently in Silver Spring, MD, within 30 minutes from where we live. Then I found out that there will be a Mini Maker Faire near us this year. I think this is something my daughter would love. She is at an age where she is inquisitive, curious, and questioning how and why things work. It is very enjoyable to watch her blossom into a girl.
