Star Wars convention looks to raise funds for local charity
May 21, Star Wars fans from all over the Midwest will gather in Hastings to celebrate the 30th anniversary of "The Empire Strike Back." They'll be attending Charity Con, the first Star Wars convention to be held in Hastings.
"As far as I know, this is the only Star Wars convention in Minnesota," said Keith Garrick, the event's coordinator.
Already Garrick knows of people from Wisconsin, Iowa, and the Dakotas who are planning to attend.
