We attended the Coldwater Steampunk Festival earlier this summer and I've previously posted about the amazing costumes and the dazzling art. For the final round up of the event, here are some odds and ends of the fun we had that day.

One of the highlights of the festival was a knight fight in the street. We missed their first fight that was scheduled and in the park, but later in the day they took to the street for another battle. It was like a game of road hockey where they had to move off to the side when a car came. Hilarious! The knights were fun to watch and put on a good show for the crowd.

Real swords!

Attack!
Knight fist bump - love it!
Happy knight
There was also a Birds of Prey show in the afternoon. There was lots of information to take in, but the bird handler didn't have a microphone so it was hard to hear all the amazing stuff barn owls do.


Another highlight was a steam powered corn roaster. They were selling the roasted corn for only fifty cents! Super deal and super delicious.



Our last stop of the day was the Coldwater Legion for some french fries and a few rounds of the meat draw (buy a ticket, maybe win a roast). It was a lot of fun and everyone at the Coldwater Legion was super nice and welcoming.

I'm already looking forward to next year! I wonder if I will put a costume together?

  2. Putting a costume together sounds like a lot of fun. I worked in a Halloween/costume shoppe a long time ago. Was fun to see the costumes.

    Corn looked gooood.

    1. The corn was great. They steamed it right in the husk, so when you peeled it, a hot cob of corn was revealed. Never had it like that before and it was lovely. And only $0.50!

      We were out looking at the Dollar Store the other day and there are lots of different hats for Halloween that we could easily make into Steampunk attire. Gotta find goggles for sure, but I think I am going to pull something together. I'm looking forward to it :)
