April 10, 2012 - PRLog -- This May 12 & 13 2012 The Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation presents the 3rd annual steampunk festival! This is a city wide event that celebrates the imagination, history and ingenuity behind Steampunk. For one weekend the city of Waltham is transformed into an alternate reality “trapped in time” where the lines between science fiction and the industrial revolution are blurred to bring guests into an immersible experience like none other!

Guests will be transported into a world, where dirigibles and hot air balloons race the skies, an old fashioned mid way, there are unique performers, musicians, and characters at every corner all telling the story of their world. International published authors and entertainers known nation wide will fill our bookstores and auditoriums. The Town Common will be transformed into a bazaar filled with vendors offering fine leather work, costume wearables, gadgets and jewelery along with buskers and demonstrations that tip their hat to a realm forgotten. There is even a race for Mayor to put the best man or woman into the seat to make decisions on the future of Steampunk City! Issues like, Rights for Robots, Reusable Energy, Hover Lanes, and Time Travel Ports. The event is family friendly but will also offer some adult entertainment in the form of Steampunk after dark which will entice guests with musical acts, burlesque dancers and carnival side show performances.

The Watch City Festival is not just another convention, it is an event that literally brings a community together. From the Museum to small businesses to schools, and even the Mayor’s office, there is no event that celebrates culture and the arts with fun, food and fantasy like this one.

The Watch City Festival will push the boundaries of even last year’s event which welcomed 10,000 visitors to the city, as this year we are expecting close to 15,000 or 20,000 guests!

Tickets are available online and can be purchased at several stations around town including the main visitor station, Waltham City Hall!
