Happy Star Wars Day - Be the first to celebrate the fourth

May the Fourth Be With You - On the First!

We are inviting all aspiring Jedi to join us next week on May 1st from 4 PM - 8 PM for games, crafts, and a movie. Young padawans will have an opportunity to build a miniature sensory lightsaber. We’ll also have Jedi Training Games & Exercises for attendees to test their skills.

Attempt to save Rey from Kylo Ren with a “force field”, build a spacecraft and try to pilot your way into the Death Star or find out just how good your eye sight is with our Blaster Practice.

The games and crafts end at 5:15, when you’ll want to grab a spot on the floor as we watch Rey’s desire to learn the ways of the Jedi force Luke to make a decision that will change their lives forever.
