Festival uncovers steampunk culture in Springfield

It's not every day that someone walks through the Great Hall in Springfield with a top hat, homemade jetpack and wooden mechanical arm without anyone batting an eye.


  1. How ironic and sad that The Great Hall, within which engineers and skilled tradesmen once produced world class machine tools, is now reduced to hosting a party of superficial "make-believers" and non-achievers.

    1. Yeah, to bad its still not a vacant, dilapidated building. Yes, that's sarcasm

    2. Agree that the ambition and intellect that once made Springfield a world power in manufacture and gave us the highest standard of living in VT is becoming a distant memory. Those who learned such skills were able to earn a living anywhere wisely elected to abandoned this over-taxed, progressive haven for welfare bums, addicts and freaks. Now, its remains serve as little more than a venue for a costume party.

    3. Yeah, I agree 2:32 we should wait till those engineers and skilled tradesman come back to Springfield, stop with this nonsense of trying new things, because any day now those big machine tool companies and their engineers will be back in Springfield. As long as we can keep those tool shops empty and ready they will be back.

  2. I agree, Steampunk was a farce.


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
