The 2018 DTLA Maker Faire was a huge success not only for the event but also for the exhibit that we had there.  https://dtla.makerfaire.com/  We set up the Classic Los Angeles Computers exhibit with a brown Commodore 64, a Commodore 128, an Amiga 2000, and an Atari 800XL, and we were showered with computer love throughout the day.  People were actually in line to use the computers!  The busiest times were the late morning and middle afternoon, and I didn't take a rest throughout that time, helping and answering questions about the systems.  The attendees had a big need for classic computer support, and I did my best to help them with computers not even at our exhibit, like Apple and IMSAI.

My thanks to SCCAN members Mario L., Rory M., Jerold K., and Jenna for lending their support.  The library seemed very pleased with our exhibit, and I have promised the exhibit will return for 2019.

Truly,
