Despite the cold dark skies sprinkling rain on the town tonight, the enthusiasm of the crowds was undiminished, as parents with children, and hoards of camera and phone waving individuals sought to capture the SPIRIT of Dewsbury for posterity. This visual extravaganza of steampunk is an annual event in Dewsbury, but each year the performance content changes in design of the fantasy machines.
