Star Wars Celebration Legends Fans Meetup & Swag Trade – May 27 at 7:30 PM Circular Fountain
Casual meetup for fans of Star Wars Legends at the fountain by the Anaheim Convention Centre Arena. Costumes and swag trade are encouraged! (Run by Katherine Winchell)
Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/events/417822180149958/
Q: Are we meeting at the main fountain out front of the convention center?
A: No, we’re meeting at the circular fountain by the convention center arena.
Q: Do I need to bring something to trade with?
A: Nope, but if you want to, I highly encourage it! Doubles you have of Legends books, custom swag, etc. are all great. I’ll be bringing some Legends items that I have doubles of and some custom made items that need loving homes.
Q: Is this the same night as Disney After Dark?
A: Yes, sorry. Unfortunately there just aren’t enough nights of the con to deconflict with everything. Friday night is the night I’m most free, so that’s what I picked.
Q: Do I need to wear a mask?
A: Yes. Even though we are outside please wear a mask. This convention has a high attendance so let’s not spread anything but love for the original Expanded Universe!
Q: Anything else?
A: Be kind to each other. Transphobia, homophobia, racism, sexism, etc. will not be tolerated.
