This event was held at “Gedung Indonesia Menggugat”, Bandung. The event bundled with art exhibition, Star Wars properties and collectible exhibition, Star Wars Fan films screening, and several Star Wars dioramas from the scenes of the film. And also the event is packed with several amusing activities and competition such as, live painting by local artist, Star Wars characters parade (Darth Vader, Anakin, couple of Jawas, C3PO, Darth Maul, Rebel Alliance Fighters, several young Padawan, and plenty of Storm Troopers), lightsaber fight tournament, lightsaber attraction competition, lightsaber choreographed fight competition, and lightsaber-smith competition.
Eventhough this is a small event compared to the one in Toronto. However, this event has managed to make the Star Wars enthusiasts gathered at the first Star Wars Day in Indonesia, and for those who aren’t Star Wars enthusiasts, this event still pretty amusing to visit.
