Joliet SWD 2017 Report

This year’s Joliet Library Star Wars Day was bigger than ever. This time, the Rialto was added to the locations you could visit. Each location had different groups to visit.

First up, the Rialto. The R2 Builders Club and the Mandalorian Mercs made this their home.


Next Up, the Library. The 501st were based here. The main area was upstairs, with a Cantina, radio broadcast and Artist Alley.


Last Up, the Historical Museum. This is the hidden Rebel base. The Rebel Legion had set up their own Endor Bunker here. All three floors of the museum had fun stuff to do, including a scavenger hunt.


All in all, a very fun day! Looking forward to next year!
