If it’s Labour Day weekend in Toronto, then it’s Fan Expo Canada. Based out of both buildings of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Fan Expo is Canada’s largest gathering of all things nerdy – comics, sci-fi, anime, horror, and gaming – all under one roof. How else do you open such an event but with the assistance of the 501st Legion? The Star Wars cosplayers and fundraisers have long been a presence at the show, but they were centerstage Thursday as Andrew Moyes, Show Director of Fan Expo HQ, officially opened the convention. Below, check out video of the opening and images of the 501st Legion clowning around outside the Convention Centre as Fan Expo 2016 begins!
