The 6th Annual Big River Steampunk Festival kicks off this Friday in Hannibal!

The 6th annual event starts in downtown Hannibal at 5pm on Friday August 30th, and goes all weekend long. The festival hours on Saturday the 31st are from 10am through Midnight, and the same hours on Sunday the 1st of September. The fest's Facebook page says "It's time again to transform Hannibal, MO into a Victorian vision of the future! General admission to daytime entertainment and dozens of seminars/workshops/competitions is free to the public, with 11 premium events from teas to late-night follies!"

If you are interested in purchasing VIP tickets to the event of for more details on what the event includes go to www.bigriversteampunkfestival.com. Ever since I moved to the Tri-States a couple months ago this is one of the main festivals that friends, and co workers said is a can't miss event!
