In the town of Charlestown, Indiana they decided to have STAR WARS DAY. In the auditorium they were showing The Clone Wars animated movie with the schedule of events to show other Star Wars movies throughout the day.

Besides several people dressed up as Star Wars characters, they had drawing for prizes that included items such as toys and games. There was a costume contest (sorry 501st and Rebel Legion members need not apply). They also had a Wii tournament and other activities going on. On top of all of that of course there was food and fun to be had by all. But to really bring out the days festivities was the appearance of several Star Wars characters from Darth Vader and Stormtroopers to Obi-Wan Kenobi and more thanks to the local 501st Bloodfin Garrison and Rebel Legion.

The Star Wars characters took several photo-ops with everyone and even signed autograph books.

The people of Charlestown, Indiana really had a wonderful little turn out for their STAR WARS DAY, even the Mayor came out to join in on the fun. They are already planning an event for next year and defiantly want the Star Wars character to come back. Thanks to everyone who made it a great time to be had by all and May The Force Be With You.
