Thousands expected downtown Troy for "The Enchanted City"


Downtown Troy will be transformed into a "cosplay" alternative reality Saturday, September 15th from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm.

In it's fifth year, The Enchanted City is an urban street fair and spectacle of steampunk fashion, fantasy and fabrications. More than eight-thousand people are expected to attend.

To discuss the event, Organizer Sue Dunckel, along with Owner of the Costumer, Bonnie Johnsen joined CBS 6's Heather Kovar Sunday morning.
