July 5th highlights American Theme Parks and Animation: As Americans, we love amusement parks and many of the world’s animated films and characters originated right here in America. With a focus on the many diverse stories and famous characters, July features a spark of American fun from our favorite films and theme parks and offers the opportunity to dress up as your favorite character

August 2nd celebrates Happy 50th Anniversary Woodstock! It’s been 50 years since love and peace were celebrated by half a million people in upstate New York. Music, tie-dyes and flowers in your hair are the memories that come along with this fabulous music festival that lives on in spirit and in our culture today. Join us for food, festivities and the vibe of peace, love and happiness.

September 6th celebrates ComiCon: What began in 1970 as a one-day comic book convention in San Diego is now one of the largest, most unique events held across the US. It’s a showcase for American pop culture – from gaming to comics to movies to art. It’s an entertainment epicenter and a “safe haven” for those who revel in being different, nerdy, or are nerd friendly. So get your cosplay ready and express your own sense of super style by dressing up as your favorite character.

October 4th features SteamPunk (A Retro Futurism Party): Retro Futurism is a movement in the creative arts showing the influence of depictions of the future produced in an earlier era. Confused? Don’t be – just imagine yourself dressed in an 1800’s Victorian outfit then add in a little science fiction twist, like an iPhone powered by steam. Or go in the opposite direction and make your laptop look like an old typewriter. It’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea, The Time Machine or Flash Gordon where predictions about the future were made using technology of the time that everyone understood. The trend can be seen in movies, fashion, music and beyond. It’s fun and an oh-so-creative way to take today’s technology and mix it up with a love of retro.

The Zombie Fashion Show is taking on a life of its own this year in a new location, Rotary Park, on Friday night October 18. Details will be updated on social media and www.discoverputnam.com
