Gathering of Geeks & Fans

Many people attended this past weekend’s 10th Annual Hawaii Geek Meet, which bills itself as “a fun, casual, family-friendly, grassroots gathering for people who are curious and have a passion that they love to share.” Geeks include coders, gadget lovers, designers, makers, artists and probably most of all, fans like you and I. There is a bit of geek in all of us.

This annual picnic was a fun, family oriented venue where people checked out an assortment of “geeky things” such as games, Star War characters, lego blocks, radio broadcasting, cosplay, coding, nerf battles, drone technology and more. It was also an opportunity to meet some interesting people and network. Interesting stuff to see if you want to have fun and just be “out there”.

What’s up with these license plates? Perhaps striking the rainbow design?

Gamers were there touting Shakesperian readings of the Star Wars story.
