Star Wars Day 2014: Fun in Photos!

May the 4th, 2014 was a lot of fun in Surrey, BC. This year we had to CHOOSE between the many events happening! It was so cool to see so many fans young and (ahem) not-so-young celebrating Star Wars.

Our first stop was the local Disney Store.

Jedi Training in progress. Some Jedi came in robes!
We were one of the last few "first 100" customers so we manage received a free Star Wars pin commemorating the day. 

Disney Store hosted Jedi Training which entailed a cast member (Disney doesn't have "staff") interacting with a Star Wars video to walk kids through various training exercises. The kids all received inflatable mini-lightsabers, paper medals of honor (just like at the end of Episode IV: A New Hope) and also a pack of trading cards afterward.

Training is now complete. Naptime next!
The cast members were great, the kids had fun and Disney Store truly got into the Star Wars spirit!

"Aren't you a little short for a Sith Lord....sir?"
Next stop was Indigo Books which had Stormtroopers interacting with the customers, some trivia challenges for the kids and a few fun giveaways too courtesy of DK Publishing and LEGO. 

More kids were there in costume for this event including some Clone Troopers and a little Darth Vader. Some of the staff were even dressed up or sporting Princess Leia's infamous hair buns!

These kids knew their Star Wars trivia!
What was so great about May the 4th/Star Wars Day was even though both events were aimed at kids the parents seemed to be having just as much fun. Both events had many parents in various Star Wars T-shirts too. Star Wars had its Dark Side of course, but May the 4th was a positive celebration of the Galaxy loved by all ages. 

May the 4th be with you....always!
