Joliet Star Wars Day 2018

This was our third year dressing up for Joliet Star Wars Day, which is held every year on the first Saturday in June. (Alex and I attended this event in 2015 before we became members.) This is one of the biggest events of its kind in the area, and it draws troopers in from other states. It starts with a parade, followed by a commemorative picture of all the parade participants. After that, there are lightsaber battles, talks about Star Wars, activities for the kids, and vendors (including Star Wars authors and artists). I didn't take a lot of pictures, but here are a few of us:

 Standing in front of a Rogue One tank that came all the way from Kentucky for this event.
 I'm the Jawa in the middle of the picture.

 A selfie in front of a "Jawa Trading Post." I should have had someone else take it to get in more of the post.
 Posing with the Rebel Legion.
 Alex held a sign for the Death Star School of the Galactic Academy (the Star Wars costuming group for minors).
  Alex takes his turn guarding the tank.

I bet Alex had a blast. And you. Nothing like that in our area.
