When: Sat., Oct. 11, 6 p.m. 2014
Balihoo is a local high-tech software company specializing in marketing automation; Family Advocates is a local nonprofit providing assistance to families and children. The two organizations don't seem a natural fit, but neither do a post-apocalyptic future, the Wild West, the Industrial Revolution and the Victorian era, yet those are all elements of steampunk fiction and fashion, and all three combined--Balihoo, Family Advocates and steampunk--give us the second annual Steampact Gala. The event, hosted by Balihoo and benefiting Family Advocates, is a night of games, auctions, music and entertainment; as well as foodtrucks, drink specials and a steampunk costume contest.
Music and entertainment from Jack Hale and the Tea Room, a Roaring '20s speakeasy band; Psychic Sheila, DJ Psycache Ziran, aerial ballet performances and more.
Bus rides from downtown Boise and Nampa available.Visitthesteampunkdistrict.com for costume ideas.
