Massive fire-breathing robots: somebody has to make them. And this November, the College Hill Alliance is holding an inaugural event to highlight those creators.
The Make End Festival’s purpose, according to their official website, is to showcase makers—“people who create original art, craft or technology-based works.”
The festival will be held in Tattnall Square Park on Saturday, Nov. 14 from 10-6 pm and on Sunday, Nov. 15 from 12-6 pm.
The Make End Festival, which is supported by ArtPlace, will hold a variety of interactive events for guests. Festival-goers can admire a 30 ft. tall robot made of recycled materials or try their hands at wooden book making. The festival will also hold a “stunt ranch” where participants can learn about the science behind movie stunts and even take part in them.
Later in the evening, “light up the hill” will take place. Festival guests will be given the opportunity to create their own globe lanterns and will have the choice of participating in an illuminated bike parade through Macon.
Make End will also feature entrepreneurial speakers as well as food and drink.
The College Hill Alliance is still looking for people interested in being ambassadors for the event to help spread the word and volunteer at the event itself. Those interested can apply here.
Those who wish to attend this event can purchase tickets online at Make-End.com. One day admittance costs $10, while two day admittance costs $15. Kids ages four and under can attend the festival for free.
