DK Publishing/ LFL - Star Wars Read Day,10/6/12
Event Name: Star Wars Reads Day
Venue: Barnes & Noble Colony Center Mall, Albany NY
Event Date: Oct. 6, 2012 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Participating Members:

Padme of Hidden Lake: Tatooine Padme
Havok69: Han Solo ANH

The event went well. We spent most of the day walking the store, talking to people and enticing them into the store by going over to the mall-side entrance. We participated in Story hour: listening to the story with the kids, helping with the coloring sheets and making "emergency" oragami Yodas, and picking the raffle winners out of the box.

The kids were happy and having fun and the parents all wanted pictures. The store got pictures of us with their digital team and the nooks. The store was happy to have us and asked if they would see us again next year.

This was my first time coordinating an event and the store manager's first time hosting an event so we could definitely have done more to plan enough activity to fill the time better and to promote the event better but everyone had a great time. The store employees were really helpful and excited to have us. I'm still waiting on the photos the store took as both of us forgot our cameras. HavoK's wife was able to get a couple pictures on her camera phone.

The cell phone wasn't cooperating well, most of the pictures were blurry. However, here's one that did come out pretty good:



Han Solo coloring with the kids. If you notice, we had a little Jedi in attendance, and he was great, he obviously had a fun time. Also, we met a future Rebel Legion member who was dressed up as Arena Battle Padme. She's ready to start next year once she turns 18. Hopefully next year we can get some more members in attendance.
