You are cordially invited to attend the first ever Big River Steampunk Festival along the shores of the Mississippi River in historic Hannibal.
Step back in time as you stroll past the 19th century buildings on Main Street; visit the magnificent Victorian mansions on Millionaires Row; cruise the Mississippi aboard the riverboat Mark Twain; and savor the vista from high above the river in a hot air balloon.
This event has fun for all ages: food and drink; a midway; afternoon tea; main stage entertainment; a costume contest; ghost tours; and many other activities.
Whether you're just curious to see what Steampunk is all about or you're a seasoned Steampunker decked out in your most elaborate costume, there's something for everyone.
To educate the public on the life and times of pioneer settlers in the Boonslick area, a variety of crafters give demonstrations of 19th century crafts. The festival includes: period music; tours of the salt springs to explain the importance of salt mining in the early economy; food; children's games; and historical displays highlighting frontier and American Indian life.
Boone's Lick, the site of an early 19th century salt manufacturing industry, lies in the valley of Salt Creek in southwestern Howard County. At this location, several saline springs seep to the surface. Animals such as deer, elk and bison would gather at the springs and literally "lick" the ground to obtain the salt. Nathan and Daniel Morgan Boone, sons of famed frontiersman Daniel Boone, began making salt there in 1805.
