Saturday, September 17th will feature the third annual Star Wars Day here in Bel Air, Maryland. (It's always fun posting about something that's actually happening in my hometown.) The fun starts at the Tiddlywinks toy store on Main Street with visits from the 501st and R2-D2. Lots of Star Wars goodies will be for sale, including some fantastic Katie Cook-designed t-shirts from Celebration V.
From there the fun will move to The Arena Club, a local athletic club, for a screening of A New Hope on one of their indoor fields.

My son had a blast at the first Star Wars Day in Bel air a couple years ago and that event only featured R2-D2. The event is getting bigger each year so make sure to stop by with your costumes and cameras.
