Tonight is the Second Annual Steamfitters Industrial Gold Themed Ball! Marking the return of the outstanding Piermont Events, the ball is the exclamation point to New Babbage Oiling Festival, marking the beginning of spring, or as described by Mayor Tenk…
“The Oiling Festival is a steampunk answer to spring cleaning, when we halt the factories to clean out the grit and grime of the previous year an perform annual maintenance. All good citizens and visitors are encouraged to roll up their sleeves and participate! The original Oiling Festival was held to add needed items to the city inventory and invite the greater steamlands to experience the Babbage way of life for a week. The drawbridges in Wheatstone Waterways, the city tartans, and the naval jack are all artifacts of last year’s competitions.”
The contest for this event is the “Best Oiling Portrait” (that one is in the act of work, not that the portrait is in oil!) For more details, please visit the outstanding blog, “Waves of a Seabreeze” – remember it starts at 6pm SLT!
