Are you a fan of Alice in Wonderland or Alice Through the Looking Glass? Would you like to experience a trip through the looking glass into the Victorian Era -- along with two sisters who actually lived at Benares Historic House?
Well, here's your chance! Come out to Benares at 1507 Clarkson Rd. N., Mississauga on Sunday, July 24 at noon for a fun afternoon of games, crafts, vendors, performances and live music.
Don't be afraid of the term "steampunk". Steampunk can be considered an inspired movement of creativity and imagination. With a backdrop of either Victorian England or America’s Wild West at hand, modern technologies are re-imagined and realized as elaborate works of art, fashion, and mechanics. If Jules Verne or H.G. Wells were writing their science fiction today, it would be considered “steampunk.”
So, with that in mind, pack up the kids and head to Benares for an interesting experience. See you there!
