Watch this video recap of Star Wars Day Toronto 2016 from The Sean Ward Show on YouTube!
After a three year hiatus, and Star Wars fandom reaching new levels of excitement in the months following the release of The Force Awakens, the first Star Wars Day event in the world returned in 2016 with a huge event at Club 279 upstairs at Hard Rock Cafe, Dundas Square.
We raised just over $2500 for Sick Kids Foundation, and welcomed celebrity guests Ajay Fry (host of InnerSpace) & PureLight Cosplay, with an epic appearance by the 501st Canadian Garrison.
We started with a huge meet up in Dundas Square before moving inside for our epic Costume Contest, a Trivia Game Show that got very competitive, photos with stormtroopers from the 501st, and tons of surprises.
