Jerry Maren, who played the central role in the Lollipop Guild, and other original Munchkins will be available for autograph and photo-signing sessions.

The Oz Museum will open at 10 a.m. Oct. 3 and will be the site of many of the special events.

Weekend passes for all three days cost $20 for adults and $14 for children. Day passes will also be available for $10 for adults and $7 for children.
