Geek Out this Weekend at Kids Comic Con and Big Lightsaber Fight

Being a Star Wars fanatic or a comic book geek is pretty cool in my book. And these cool kid-friendly events celebrate and bring out the geek in all of us. A giant black-lit lightsaber battle? What could be cooler than that? A comic book convention just for kids. Let's go!

There's nothing cooler than these geeky activities:

Giant Lightsaber Battle
Saturday, April 25th 2009, 8:15 PM
Washington Square Park SE corner
WS South & LaGuardia Pl.
Free and all ages

Join Newmindspace and NYU Program Board in a massive, glowing lightsaber battle! 3,000 blacklight-reactive, meter-long cardboard tubes will be distributed in Teen Plaza, where there will be massive blacklight cannons aimed at the crowd! Wear black, neon or both. The battle will continue until every tube is DESTROYED!

If have a Star Wars fanatic, like I do, you might also want to head to Queens on May 3rd for a free Lightsaber Combat Workshop at the public library in Kew Gardens, Queens.
