The highlight of the Steampunk festivities at the City-State this weekend revolve around Captain Red Llewellyn’s May Day Country Dance and Party, celebrating the arrival of spring. As the good Captain puts it…
Please join us for dancing amid the spring flowers, cavorting around the maypole (complete with silly walks), and the sipping of rum-spiked lemonade. Best of all, the esteemed Mister Wiggy Undertone is providing his carnivale games! This event will feature a dunk tank for hilarious humiliation, and a big hammer strength test to show off those muscles – play along, win a prize! Take aim at the shooting gallery, and laugh at the Punch & Judy show. You’ll enjoy all this and more at our May Day Country Dance & Party!
Leading the festivities will be Miss Addie Tharnaby as our May Day Queen and Master Finley Twine as our our Robin Goodfellor & Lord of Misrule. All New Babbage urchins & citizens are urged to embrace the spirit of the day – hooliganism is encouraged! No remonstrations or recriminations will be made for any prank or high-jinks!
