You might have seen it in movies like Sherlock Holmes with Robert Downey Jr. or Wild Wild West with Will Smith, it's called steampunk. Also known as, "Victorian Science Fiction," and soon you'll be able to see if for yourself right in Hannibal!

The 4th annual Steampunk Festival event will kick off Friday night September 1 and wrap up on September 4. This festival is free for all to attend with many events  throughout the weekend including a costume contest on Saturday and Sunday, music throughout the weekend, and vendors lined-up on Main Street. For a complete schedule of events click here.

There are events that do require a ticket purchase such as Frankenstein's Lab, Masquerade, and the Time Traveler's Ball. Tickets will be sold on a first come first serve basis, so if you are interested in any of these events buy your tickets now.

This event is awesome. I have taken my girls the past two years and they just love it. I think it's the costumes that they like (the food is pretty yummy too). If you have no plans this Labor Day Weekend, take the family to Hannibal for the Steampunk Festival (you won't be disappointed).
