Blue Ridge Books in Waynesville is holding a Star Wars party from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10. The event will include games and crafts for children, a trivia contest for all ages, free Star Wars souvenirs for the first 100 participants, and a costume contest. Star Wars prizes will be given for contest winners and there will be a raffle for other Star Wars prizes.
The highlight of the event will be a special appearance by several members of the 501st Legion. The 501st Legion is a costuming organization formed in 1997. Since that time, its members have spread the magic of the Star Wars genre worldwide through its authentic-looking costumes, and it has become the leading force in fan-based charity events.
