Edmonton Nerds Have a Busy Week Ahead

Usually I do an update on the Friday to remind everyone what’s happening on the weekend but this week is looking to be insane. I’ll have a separate post later today or tomorrow for more Star Wars day events as they become available. The 501st Legion-Badlands Garrison should post their events today (Update: They did and they’re listed below) and I’m reaching out to the Saber Guild as well. There’ll be another one later this week for Free Comic Book day events (plan on Happy Harbor & Variant Edition being the hotspots though).

How do I get to all of these and still go to a toddler’s birthday party on Saturday?

For starters…

Monday:

Zing in the Sherwood Park mall are having a Pokemon Day with games, cards, loot and Pokemon Cosplayers (Sorry no link to share… Apparently they can’t use the national page to advertise local events and aren’t allowed to do their own official advertising).

 

Wednesday: Star Wars Day (May the 4th be with you).

Star Wars-The Force Awakens releases on DVD & Digital Release
-The 501st Legion will be at Ed’s Rec Room from 6:30-9pm.

-There will be Light Saber training in Churchill Square at 7pm.
