Period Costume
A number of people have always added colour and life to our Steam Rally by dressing in period costume. This year we are encouraging exhibitors, volunteers and the public to do the same. The period of yesteryear you choose is up to you. You can even dress in the reimagined Victorian style of 'steampunk'. We will be celebrating those who choose to dress up by having a fashion parade and prizes.
