Note for myself and Boston-area peeps who are Steampunk fans:
The Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation
in Waltham, MA is hosting the New England Steampunk Festival on Saturday, May 1, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
According to the flyer (downloadable at the CRMI&I Website) it's apparently a big deal, complete with interactive exhibits, working craftsmen and blacksmiths on-site, weaponry demonstrations, live music, fashion shows, live action roleplaying...
Sounds like a freaky good time to me.
For my Boston-area peeps who are already marking their calendars for this, tix are $6 for adults, $4 for kids.
