Canadian Steampunk Festival Gets Toronto Wound Up

More than four thousand people arrived at the front lawn of the historic Campbell House in Toronto for Steam On Queen, Canada’s first Steampunk street festival. That’s more than four times what was expected. Clearly the festival’s collection of merchant tents mixed with creative public performances ignited a lot of curiosity.

Amongst the belly-dancers, sideshows artists, and corset fitters there was old fashioned lemonade, medical oddities, and exhibits of Steampunk inventions by mad geniuses. Here’s my television report for Studio 12 News to see what you missed out (and can look forward to next time.)
