Fun at Big River Steampunk Festival! 

I’ve been writing a lot lately. My writing muse has pretty much taken over, which means the sequel to “Strax and the Widow”, “Revenge and Machinery” is coming along.

But I’m behind on blogging. Thus finally the highlights from the Labor Day weekend Big River Steampunk Festival in Hannibal, MO. 

First, it was incredibly hot. So hot I confess I spent a huge amount of time in one of the local bars and antiquing. 

But we started off watching some of the performers on the main stage and catching up in time travel with writer Barbara MacRobie from the Missouri Arts Council.


Then onto watching Doc Phineas hosting tea dueling:


Got a few photos with the Doc:


Doc was certainly one of the most pleasant people I’ve ever met.

Can Can Kate and I got a bit overheated so we headed to Rumor Has It for libations and chow. Some of the best mozerella sticks ever! 

It was still quite hot, so on we went to antiquing at Main Street at Main Street 101 and Savannah’s for great antique pieces!

I hate to complain about the heat, but it was just too yucky. We did miss some of the contests, including the beard and costume competitions, but I know both of Saturday’s winners. They are fine people! Saw the Airship Vindus crew and Marcibel Automation from afar, but again, our time was limited to just Saturday afternoon.

We wrapped up with some lovely ice cream, a last look at the shops, a nice meet with a rat catcher, and quick hello to Unwoman on the way to her gig.

Couldn’t resist an impromptu shoot with Can Can:

 I plan on going back next year and hope for cooler weather and more time to explore!

As always, thank you for reading.
