Few things could be more exciting than a dazzling fireworks display coupled with a whimsical parade of spirited steampunk revelers wearing costumes designed with steampunk elements in mind…top hats, gears, clockworks, keys and goggles. Titanic’s “Rose” reenactor, outfitted in her finest steampunk attire, will lead the eye-popping procession.
As always, the Titanic Museum Attraction’s Thanksgiving Fireworks Show will be dedicated to the memory of the 2,208 men, women and children who sailed on Titanic. Everybody is welcome, so plan to come early and tour the museum attraction, then step outside for a family Titanic fireworks show unlike any other.
What is steampunk and what has it to do with Titanic? The term steampunk was coined by author K.W. Jeter in 1987 to describe an inventive mash-up of Victorian/ Edwardian history and science fiction – a time when steam, not electricity, drove technological advancements. Titanic was the ultimate steam machine in 1912, the queen of propulsion and steam pump power. Today she is hailed as an icon of steampunk culture.
