Steampunk Festival

Celebrating its fifth year on Saturday Sept. 15th, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., The Enchanted City is an urban street fair and spectacle of steampunk fashion, fantasy and fabrications that magically transforms the historic blocks of downtown Troy, N.Y. into a “cosplay” alternative reality where Victorian fancy meets modern technology. The free festival has drawn more than 8,000 participants in previous years and expects to top that number this year. We’re joined in the studio tonight by Cara Sherwood to talk about this exciting weekend event.
