Waltham, Massachusetts goes Steampunk.

Posted by on February 14th,2011

Waltham, also known as the Watch City, “Birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution,” and “a place where I’ve lived” is getting a steampunk makeover. Indeed,  the whole town!

Here’s the deal:

From May 6-8, Waltham will play host to the International Steampunk City festival, which will serve as an ambitious city-wide fundraiser for the Charles River Museum of Industry. Scheduled events include special offers at local restaurants (there are quite a few), steampunk cinema screenings at the Embassy Theater off the locally famous Moody Street, and steamy performances that will no doubt be conducted in the city’s lush public park.
