Hop aboard a time machine today and travel back to the era when people dressed like Edward Gorey characters and rode in paddleboats along the Mississippi. What? That never happened? Well then, you’ll need your imagination at Pier 40 for the 
final event of Gemini and Scorpio’s Steampunk Weekend, which involves an old-timey cruise aboard The Queen of Hearts—and costumes (or at least some kind of effort to look like you’ve escaped from a Victorian circus) are required. Brooklyn brass ensemble the Hungry March Band provide the music. Other events happening during this Steampunk Weekend include Friday’s concert with Amanda Palmer at the Lincoln Center Out of Doors festival and Saturday’s Lost Circus Costume Ball.
