Please use this thread to contain all information about the Knight Rider Festival happening in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 20-21, 2009. I've pinned this topic so that it always has a prominent display on the forum.
Several threads have been made on the subject and the problem with that is that the information easily becomes lost over a period of days.
Any important information will be added to this initial post so that we can consolidate important information as necessary.
