Steampunk Festival [Mar. 8th, 2010|08:34 pm]
Waltham, Massachusetts


[UPDATE: Due to needing some cleanup time at the museum after the recent flooding, the Steampunk Festival has been moved to a new date, May 1st.]

The Charles River Museum of Industry in Waltham is hosting a Steampunk Festival on Saturday, May 1st from 10:00am-4:00pm. "Steampunk" is a science fiction genre heavily influenced by the Victorian era -- think H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, steam engines, airships and ray guns. There will be artists, dancers, authors, costume and prop makers, and lessons and displays on all things steampunk, hosted in a museum that focuses on the area's early industrial history.

That is excellent. It's too bad I'll be at Ballet class and then out after. :/

The steampunk festival just got moved to May 8th due to water damage at the musuem -- perhaps that will work better for you.

Unfortunately 5/8 is worse, still have ballet (always on a Saturday morning) and going to a 40th birthday party and a troop.

I think though, you'll get more people out, better weather. I hope that the Mill didn't take too serious damage! :/
