Annual Buster Keaton Convention

The 24th Annual Buster Keaton Convention in Michigan is about a month away, October 5th and 6th. Hosted by the BK fan club, The Damifinos, they have an impressive schedule of events planned. Here is the link. Whether you are interested in going or not, the schedule is worth a read!

In case you don't know, Buster and his family spent many summers in Muskegon, MI. It became an off-season retreat for actors by 1903. Buster's father, Joe, helped establish the seasonal community. Here is an interesting link about The Actors' Colony. They also have some good info and pictures on Buster and his family here.
