Knight Rider Festival: It's Vegas, baby

Ahhhh .... thank the Lord we're comin' up for air from a jam-packed weekend in Las Vegas for the first-ever Knight Rider Festival. We're going to bring you all kinds of fun tidbits from the event, but for today, here are a few images to whet your appetite, from BRBTV's own experience driving across the country with a couple fervent "Knight Rider" fans, one friendly KITT GPS unit and a KITT dashboard in the back all primed for star signatures ...

Yippeeeeeee -- 30 hours of quality car time! BRB left outta Detroit with her two buds last Thursday morning for the cross-country journey to Vegas ...

The "Knight Rider" GPS unit -- fully equipped with the voice of KITT, actor William Daniels -- guided us through the mountains and much more.

After 12 hours of much-needed sleep, BRB headed out on Fremont Street for a quiet walk at 5 a.m. Saturday, before anyone else was up but while the beautiful lights of this "annex" of the Vegas strip were still lighting the way. The Golden Nugget (above, which includes a Starbucks, bless 'em) and the Four Queens (below) were the host hotels for the festival.

The Q&A sessions and entertainment for the event were set up on two different staging areas on Fremont Street. Tune in tomorrow for coverage of the event itself, and check out BRB's Facebook author profile page (and "become a fan") to see the whole "Vegas, Baby" photo album ...
