Their mission is "to spread goodwill through simple acts of kindness, recognize individuals who have battled through adversity, and encourage the involvement of the community to make a positive difference in the lives of others. We make costumed visits to children's hospitals, special needs centers, and various charitable events whenever we are needed."



There were also educational and entertainment sessions off the main show floor.

After some instruction from the experts the fans got to try their hand at light saber fighting. Here is a video of some highlights.



As always the costumes of the vendors and attendees were the best part of the event.
