Steampunk Street returns to downtown Mesa’s Second Friday
This time, “Steampunk Street III” is the monthly street party’s theme, revisiting the popular style of gizmos that never were, as a host of technologically advanced Victorian contraptions and characters descends upon the segment of Main Street between Robson and Macdonald.
To get a taste of the mechanical manifestations you will encounter, check out Mandy Zajac’s article in today’s East Valley Tribune, and fire up the time machine for a look back on some images from April’s Steampunk Street II.
And you can also enjoy a presentation of “speculative history” and historical fact compiled by Evermore Nevermore, in which the downtown curiosity shop links Mesa, the ancient Hohokam who lived here and H.G. Wells in a vast cosmic conspiracy that all comes to a head on 11/11/11.
