International Steampunk Festival

Join Lauren for an incredible trip back in time THIS SATURDAY, MAY 12th. 100 years ago to be exact! Experience the entire city of WALTHAM, MA as it would have been a century ago.

The EC BOSTON trip will meet this Saturday in North Station, right in front of Dunkin Donuts at 11:00. We will gather for 15 minutes, then board the train for Waltham on the commuter train (FITCHBURG LINE). Fare is $10.50 round trip so Bring Cash and buy your ticket at the station. We will arrive in Waltham Center at 12:00PM. FREE shuttle service is available to and from the train station. Admission Price for Festival Tickets is $15, which includes a hot air balloon ride. This is a photo opportunity to snap pictures of people dressed in vintage costumes. You will be traveling back to the Victorian era, when steam engines ruled during the steam powered industrial age. Air ships were thought to be the most viable form of air travel of this time period.

On Saturday, there is a chance of rain showers so please tote an umbrella and wear comfortable shoes. Bring extra cash for your lunch at the festival. We will establish a meeting spot so we can check in for a late afternoon lunch together at 2:30PM and again before we gather to go back to the train station at 4:30PM. You are encouraged to wear aviator goggles, boots and cools hats (steampunk gear) but not required. Please sign up on the 4th floor before Friday at 1PM. I will see you at North Station.
