Now, you may be thinking that this is just another Library event....and you could not be more wrong.....

Last year, we had approximately 120 people in costume and 11,000 people from many States came to this event. Streets are blocked off and the event is held in two facilities along with the street.

Here is a copy and paste of last years "Mission Report"....so...if this looks like something you would like to participate in...
after the Mission Report...read more about this years massive Rebel Legion/Nar Shaddaa Base display build...a full size Endor Bunker.

This year NSB featured our Pilots for the display



Some group photos







The Outlaws



I see Pilots...




This year our charity project was selling official "Nar Shaddaa Base Holdout Blasters" - these were actually just blasters found at Dollar Tree that looked suspiciously like a concept blaster that Tim Jarmusz had made...
the blasters were offered as a "prop challenge" for $3.00 - a whopping $620.00 was collected from this project. The money is headed to one of our own...details to follow once the check is sent out.



I stole a lot of good photos off Facebook for this event...

here are but a few...

Tim Jarmusz trying to recruit more Pilots...




Never put these two in the same room....trouble will likely follow...





Always good to see members of Renegade Squad out and about..






The Jedi...






Aggressive negotiations in the Solo household



the Skywalkers...


NSB had both of their Wookiees out tag teaming..





and...you will never know what you might see at the after party...




More photos...both my own...and stolen from only the finest albums on Facebook are here:

here is what we are building this year:



and we are well on our way:

I sure hope you can make it...this is a really big and fun event...
We had some members come in for the first time last year from a couple neighboring bases....they said they would be back this year because they had a great time...

A few videos to give you an idea:

I've been meaning to do this one too, looks like a lot of fun. Maybe this is the year. Just depends on my work schedule which I won't know until closer to. How late does the event usually run? Does the event start up proper after the parade? Are there any social events/after parties? Where's the best place to ask logistical questions like hotels and parking?
Thanks for the invite.

The event actually starts with the parade that steps off at 11:00 AM...we of course are around starting at 8:00 AM...suiting up...and shooting the breeze. Line up for the parade starts at 10:30 AM.

The event runs usually till around 4:30 PM...there is usually an after party as well with liquid refreshments provided by the Joliet Area Historical Museum...we all pitch in for food.


The Facebook page is here:

Not too many updates at this time of the year...updates will start occurring more frequently starting in April.
