Geekend returned to downtown Kilgore for its eighth year. 

There were fan-friendly events, such as author panels and cosplay characters roaming the streets; family-friendly events, such as a Cookies with Chewie event and face painting; and a long list of local and sci-fi/comic vendors for shoppers to explore while at Geekend.

In addition to a long list of performers and special guests, the weekend festival included a casting call for an upcoming alien sci-fi movie; a Naruto Run, a silly and fun event where people will be sprinting at breakneck speed while leaning forward, arms stretched straight behind and hands splayed open, based on the long-running show; and a visit from Chewie.
