Steelhead has a number of German-born residents, such as a number of the mad scientists, the Jagers, and of course Baron Wulfenbach. So came this notice:
The Consulate is going to host the Friday Night Dance for Walpurgisnacht that celebrates the "coming of spring and the return of the tourists which is why we pretend to be demons to protect ourselves.'
Starting at 7:00 PM, two hours of tunes from Da Fuzz, with Zanya taking over at 9:00 PM
Dropping in, there was quite a number dropping about. Unfortunetly, most everyone remained grey to me for quite some time. Fortunately Garnet Psaltery was willing to share her pictures with me (above).
There was the usual amount of Steelhead wisecracks, including a number of "monstrous puns."
More pictures of Steelhead's Walpurgisnacht can be found in Garnet's Flickr (Click Here). She also has sets of other Walpurgisnacht festivals at Europa and Caledon.
The place was covered with a thick fog, leading to jokes that if someone was gray from lag others were unlikely to notice. There were a number of witches there, including a chakat whom was dancing unusually smooth for a taur avatar. A mermaid swung on one of the dance poles. And a vampire bat hovered around for a while until coming down to dance with one dark lioness.
