    And in related news, the real-life town that serves as the setting of the novels, Forks, Wash., held a "Twilight" symposium last weekend that included a full-scale prom.

    According to People, the town has become a Twi-hard tourist hotspot in the wake of the franchise's popularity. Fans who went through the $300 symposium were awarded with a diploma at a graduation ceremony in Forks High School's cafeteria, and the prom featured performances by "Twilight"-influenced fan bands such as the Bella Cullen Project, Bella Rocks and the Mitch Hansen Band.
