Star Wars Fans come from all over the world to Celebrate

The weekend of August 23- 26, 2012 thousands of Star Wars fans both young and old traveled to Orlando, Florida to be part of "a Galaxy far, far away" at Celebration VI.
The crowd waits to enter.

Entire families spent their vacation doing what they loved most, being a part of the Star Wars Universe.  Most wore elaborate costumes with life sized props to release their inner Geek and to celebrate their inner child of fantasy and wonder.
