GOLDEN, Colo. - May 9, 2018 - PRLog -- All aboard for the 3rd Annual Steampunk at the Station at the Colorado Railroad Museum!  Our steam engines create the perfect backdrop for the popular genre of "science fiction meets the 19th century Industrial Age" found in music, clothing, art and lifestyle. With a nod to Steampunk icon, Tesla, we invite guests to arrive in their finest Steampunk attire and/or with their Steampunk gadget to enjoy a day full of entertainment, train rides, craft beer, vendors and more.

Here are some events that the museum will host throughout the day:

• Take a ride behind historic Steam Locomotive No. 346 and time travel to booming industrial 1881 Colorado.
• Admire in awe at aerial entertainment from Salida Circus, Tesla themed science shows, balloon twisters, stilt walkers, and entertainers throughout the site.
• Augment your Steampunk collection with gifts and gadgets from local artists in Merchant Alley.
• Pose for professional photography and personalized steampunk portraits in front of over 100 historical artifacts.
• Enjoy a craft brew in our beer garden for the 21+ crowd and a number of food truck options for lunch.
