The annual Make Lincoln event took place last weekend at 21st and Y street as artists, hobbyists and entrepreneurs gathered to showcase Lincoln and Nebraska.

Make Lincoln showcased telescope experts, bubble makers, 3D printers, unicycle makers and riders. People of all ages enjoyed the fall morning as the creative spirit was in the air. The event showcased just how important community is, especially after the past year and a half.
