7th Annual Joliet Star Wars Day 2016

Leave a comment

My son Owen (the star of most of the above photos) and I were lucky enough to attend Joliet, Illinois’s 7th Annual Star Wars Day yesterday. The event, hosted by the Joliet Public Library, featured the 501st Legion and the Rebel Legion alongside a slew of exhibitors, artists, and vendors (including John Jackson Miller and a live Rebel Force Radio podcast). The event spanned two floors of Joliet’s downtown library, but there were also games, food vendors, and live music on the blocked-off surrounding streets outside the building. Joliet Star Wars Day is free and a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a micro Star Wars Celebration style event, so if you live in the Chicago area or within a reasonable driving distance, I would definitely recommend checking out the event next year.
