Today is May The 4th aka Star Wars Day. The ‘holiday’ is a play on the classic line, “May the force be with you” from Star Wars. Throughout the country and the world fans of George Lucas’ epic creation celebrate all things Star Wars including here in Milwaukee. Whether you are a long-time fan or a “wookie,” here are some events to check out. Go out and meet some new friends, no need to be solo (unless you are in costume.)
Decorate your very own paper plate BB-8 or make a fuzzy Chewbacca bookmark. Coloring sheets, stickers, and various other crafting supplies will be available in the East Branch Community Room from 4:00pm-6:00pm. Star Wars fans of all ages are encouraged to attend, Jedi robes optional (but strongly encouraged).
