Mini Maker Faire returns to Rochester

Heavy Meta, the fire-breathing dragon, will be on display as part of the Rochester Mini Maker Faire on Saturday.

You won't be able to miss the fire-breathing dragon coming to Rochester as part of the Mini Maker Faire this weekend.

Heavy Meta is a 30-foot-long, 19-foot-tall, mobile metal dragon made of hand-cut, hand-welded sheet metal panels built atop a GM bus. It shoots fireballs from its tail and animatronic mouth.

That's among the many innovations featured at the family-friendly event, which is best described as a cross between a science fair, craft show and carnival for people of all ages.

It's happening Saturday at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

Faire producer Dan Schneiderman joined us on Good Day Rochester to explain everything that's going on at the event.
