We had a pretty big turnout, both members and fans. We have had a long relationship with the Erie Zoo and this event, so they give us a lot of freedom. We could go just about anywhere in the zoo, except the monkey house. In the past, we have even ridden the train and some of the rides. This year, we only rode the merry-go-round.

They had a small stage for dancing and a DJ. We did not dance as much as last year, but a few still got out there. There were a lot more kids on the stage, too, so we didn't want any collisions with troopers with limited vision.

Volunteers from the local high schools handed out candy at the ticket booths. They were disciplined, too. They wouldn't give candy to any Stormtroopers, and Jedi Mind Tricks didn't work.

The weather didn't cooperate. Dreary Erie lived up to its name. We had on-and-off showers that got heavy at times. That cut things short. Despite the soggy weather, the event was a lot of fun. We had several conference rooms to change in, so we were treated very well. All of the kids and some of the parents dressed up, and everyone loved us. We split up and were in different areas around the zoo, but we were stopped to take pictures constantly.

Great kids, no problems at all.
