2012 Dickens on the Strand | Galveston

While I admit I hadn't been to Dickens on the Strand in a few years, I certainly don't remember Steam Punk. Perhaps I missed it, but I certainly couldn't this year. According the Wikipedia, Steam Punk is a sub-Genre of Science fiction. Follow the reference for more detail in case you're interested. Since Steam Punk costumes are often adapted from Victorian Era, the movement seemed right at home on the streets of the Strand Historic District. I'd never really heard of retro-futuristic adaptations before. At first we thought maybe the costumes may have been based on a recent movie or perhaps some Dickens style characters of which I was unaware. Turns out, I nearly missed an entire sub genre of science fiction. Now that you too are in loop, take a look at the photos and you're likely to pick up on it.

Of course, if you're familiar with the Annual Dickens on the strand, you'll also recognize the Victorian ladies and gentlemen, "Bobbies," Beefeaters and paupers that make Dickens and annual favourite. British spelling seems appropriate.

While there were several parades, lots of street vendors and side shows, we caught the 2 pm parade which included "Her Majesty the Queen."
