What is Star Wars Day?
International Star Wars Day is an annual celebration, on May the 4th, of George Lucas' Star Wars
franchise - the movies, films, series, books and costumes. Since the release of the first Star Wars movie over 40 years ago, the saga has had a seismic impact on both cinema and culture. Seems that Star Wars fans are a very loyal and passionate group who enjoy the intergalactic culture, Cosplay and Star Wars conventions such as the huge one held in Chicago. I will be celebrating Star Wars Day as I always do: with a "Pan-galactic Gargle Blaster" of course. It's the Obi-Wan for me.
Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster Mug
All you Jedi, Sith, smugglers and rogues out there are invited to join friends and other Star Wars fans to celebrate International Star Wars Day. Below are some of the FREE ways Star Wars Day is celebrated in Brisbane.
