DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Carillon Historical Park hosted its first Dayton Mini Maker Faire on Saturday.

The family-friendly event featured robotics, blacksmithing, rocketry, sewing, steam engines, 3D printing, live demonstrations and hands-on activities.

Another highlight was the Boneyard Build-Off. It was a competition in which professional makers raced to complete a project using repurposed and recycled materials.

The Dayton Mini Maker Faire is a partnership between Carillon Historical Park and Make It Dayton. It runs until 5 p.m. Saturday.
