RICHLAND, Wash.- Saturday is May the 4th… or "May the fourth be with you".
In partnership with the Richland Public Library the Tri-Cities International Fantastic Film Festival presented a Star Wars and science fiction themed fan film screening. They also had a costume contest and a green screen where you could pose with a storm trooper and put yourself into a famous Star Wars scene. The library welcomed the extra visitors on a Saturday afternoon.
"It's good to get people into the Library, because once they're in here obviously they can go and look at the stuff that's on our shelves too," said Gavin Lightfoot of the Richland Library. "So it's always nice to get a little attention for what we have here and of course we like to give away stuff too."
Give away stuff they did. There were comic books available as part of free comic book day. The event ended appropriately at 4 pm.
