Title: Upcoming Boston events
Post by: Mikey D on June 3, 2005, 11:03 AM
So two pretty big SW related events are coming to Boston.  First is Star Wars - Where Science meets Imagination ( premiering at the Museum of Science in late October and running until April 2006.  Definitely planning on attending this.  Tickets go on sale August 1st.

Second is Wizard World Boston (, running from September 30th until October 2nd.  Might attend this one.  I'm not really a fan of conventions, but if enough forum members went, it'd be cool to meet some of you.  It be interesting to see what the exclusives are also, might have some cool SW swag.

Is the Boston version of Wizard World fairly new?  I'm pretty sure I've heard of the Chicago and Philly versions, but Boston is new to me (at least to my foggy brain).

I've always dreamed of coming to Boston to see a Bruins game, but who knows if there'll even be hockey to watch by the time WW is there.  Someday I'll see the Bruins in action...

This is the first year of Wizard World Boston.

Been to a few Bruins games, but haven't been able to see them play the Flyers yet (my fav team).
