Steampunk Parade

We offer you a journey into the world of steampunk imagination. The journey to the Victorian era, when the industrial revolution, technological progress and many inventions awakened trustfulness and hope. The science and the industrialization were not yet burdened with experience of twentieth-century massacre; the experience that always left an imprint on our perception of technical progres, tying it with a fear of mass destruction. In this context, the era of the steam appears to us as an era of innocence, joyful, creative fascination with the possibilities offered by technical inventions.

The main elements of the parade is a submarine - Mechanical fish-bathyscaphe, transported by steam tractor, accompanied by a three-wheeled bicycle. Vehicles accompanied by stilt walkers and characters on the ground in fancy steampunk costumes. Among the characters viewers will recognize travellers, inventors, discoverers, radio operator and photographer. The show is complemented by the music playing devices installed in vehicles, the sounds of horns, smoke and colored lights.

Parade takes place both during the day and in the evening. Actors come into vivid interaction with the audience. The event attracts the eye to its aesthetics and details, and the actions of the actors full of energy and humour bring the audience in a cheerful mood.
