Long Island Ghostbusters

Friday Night in the Main Lobby.  All Ages.

Long Island GhostbustersIn 2003, two brothers set out to make a difference on Long Island. But, they couldn’t do it alone. Now, the Long Island Ghostbusters are back and better than ever.

The Long Island Ghostbusters is a group that does local charities and events. With over fifteen years of service, we are the premiere Ghostbusters group on Long Island. We can be seen at many car shows and charity events.

This group of friends bonded over an intense love of the 1984 film and have made it their mission to spread that love throughout Suffolk and Nassau counties. “We’re ready to believe you!”

Empire City GarrisonThe 501st Legion is an all-volunteer worldwide organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate. The Legion seeks to promote interest in Star Wars through the building and wearing of quality costumes, and to facilitate the use of these costumes for Star Wars-related events as well as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work. We are known for representing bad guy characters like Stormtroopers, Clone Troopers, Bounty Hunters, and Sith Lords, in the most accurate way possible. We are officially recognized by Disney / Lucas Film as their preferred costuming group. The Empire City Garrison is the local New York chapter of the 501st Legion.

Saber Guild

10:00 AM - 4:00 PM in the Children's Room.  All Ages.

Saber GuildSaber Guild is a not-for-profit, LucasFilm-recognized Star Wars costuming group that specializes in choreographed lightsaber shows. We perform at charity and community events, as well as comic book and sci-fi conventions, all to raise money for charity and share our love of Star Wars with fans around the world.

Saber Guild started in 2006 with half a dozen people in California, members of established costuming organizations and unofficial lightsaber choreography groups coming together to have fun, serve the community and represent the Star Wars brand in a way that had never been done before. Now, nine years later, Saber Guild has over 250 members in 15 temples and five countries. We are not only Lucasfilm’s preferred lightsaber performance group, but we are the largest recognized lightsaber club in the world.

Endor Temple performs in Nassau and Suffolk counties. We perform scripted, chorographed shows, as well as our Padawan Training Institute, where we teach aspiring Jedi the ways of the force and the use of a lightsaber.

Any and all proceeds for our appearances go to charity. None of our members are compensated for their appearances.
