Slideshow: StarFest Turns 37 With Mix Of Old And New

The city of Denver exercised its geek right to assemble over the weekend, bringing together zombies, redshirts, wookies, browncoats, and more.

If you know what any of that meant, then it means you’re certainly a card carrying geek.

This year’s gathering was another notch in the post for StarFest, the city’s venerable sci-fi convention founded in 1977. Along with Denver Comic Con, the conventions are a big part of why Denver was recently ranked as the 10th nerdiest city in the nation.

Check out some of the scene at StarFest:

I’m not a Colorado native (did you know that "I'm from Missouri" means "I'm skeptical of the matter and not easily convinced?") but I have lived here for most of my life and couldn't imagine leaving. After graduating from Colorado State University, I did what everyone wants to do; I moved to the mountains and skied, hiked, and hid from responsibility! Our listeners in the mountains may know me from my time in Steamboat Springs and Vail or as the voice of the Battle Mountain Huskies Hockey team in Vail.
