Danile Logan will also be attendance, he is best known for his portrayal of Boba Fett from the 2002 film Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones.

Many attendees get into the spirit and love dressing up as their favorite characters, you’re still allowed to do so. All the event organizers ask is that you be careful with any weapons that may be included with your costume; obviously no real weapons will be permitted in the event.
