Jefferson- Organized by the Steampunk Illumination Society, and hosted by Marquis of Vaudeville, this three day event is set to take place from March 30, 2012 – April 1, 2012 in Jefferson, Texas. We will be delving into the world of paranormal and Steampunk together in one hauntingly spectacular event. Join us for journeys through ghostly lands as we ride steam trains, steam boats, horse drawn carriages, venture through museums, visit historical sites, patron antique shops, dance to fantastical music and so much more! We invite everyone, young and old, to join us in this one-of-a-kind convention that doesn’t aim to take over a single building, but an entire city that is known for it’s ghostly inhabitants and spectacular haunts.
