The Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division has a large collection of historic photographs. In searching the collection, we have found several interesting images for Quincy and Hannibal. There are also several shots from a number of additional cities in our area, including Palmyra, Pittsfield, Louisiana, Clarksville and Keokuk. Unfortunately, dates are not available for all of these images, and it appears that a few may not be accurately labeled. Even so, it is interesting to take a look back at these historic images.
The Big River Steampunk Festival is in its second year in downtown Hannibal. Even those of us that did not know a lot about Steampunk before this festival started have quickly discovered that costumes are a major focus for Steampunk enthusiasts. We snapped several photos of impressive costumes we saw while walking around Main Street, and the riverfront area at Kiwanis and Nipper parks.
The 2015 Big River Steampunk Festival kicked off with a parade in downtown Hannibal on Saturday morning. Even Mark Twain got in on the fun! We were able to capture footage of the parade as it made the turn from Broadway to Main Street.
The second annual Big River Steampunk Festival got underway Saturday morning with a parade in downtown Hannibal. The festival has vastly expanded following its successful debut in 2014. There are Big River Steampunk Festival activities scheduled through Labor Day. Lisa Marks from the Hannibal History Museum is one of the organizers of the festival, and she gave us a behind the scenes look at the festival's conception, and its expansion in 2015.
The very first Big River Steampunk Festival was held in Hannibal on Labor Day Weekend in 2014. The event draw participants from around the region (in fact, even a few from several states away!) as well as curious onlookers who stopped in to find out what Steampunk was all about. After its successful debut, organizers quickly went to work on planning the next Big River Steampunk Festival.
The second annual Big River Steampunk Festival will be taking place in Hannibal September 5-7. Want to know everything about this year's festival? Download the 2015 Big River Steampunk Festival guidebook here.
September is National Preparedness Month, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and National Honey Month. It is also the month in which fun local events like the Big River Steampunk Festival, Tri-State Rodeo and the Great River Grape Escape all take place...
Get ready to celebrate National Cheeseburger Day! Did you even know there is a National Cheeseburger Day? That shouldn't be confused with National Hamburger Day. There's one of those, too. National Hamburger Day is in May (during National Hamburger Month), and National Cheeseburger Day is in September. I'm not sure exactly how National Hamburger/Cheeseburger Day is officially celebrated, but it's probably safe to assume that the day is marked by ordering a favorite burger from a favorite restaurant. Where would you order from?
