Fans of The Wizard of Oz will gather for the 33rd annual Munchkin Convention. It features Karl Slover, one of the original Munchkins, and Donna Stewart-Hardway, one of the 12 children who played Munchkins in the movie. This is the 60th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz - it was released in 1939.
The U.S. chapter of the International Wizard of Oz club, founded in 1957 by a small group of movie enthusiasts, holds three separate conventions each year, one in the West, Midwest, and East.
A national convention will be held next year on the campus of Indiana University in Bloomington, which has a large collection of Oz memorabilia in its school library.
