Star Wars fans or any Sci/Fi Fans come to the Run of the Galaxy. It may be on May the Second, but its a May the Fourth Be With You event. We invite you to come in or out of costume, but please be respectful of others when bringing props or costume-wear. Come dressed as your favorite space cowboy, villian, swing around that lightsaber, push a stroller/pod racer down the track, or come as any other sci/fi character.
Each Pre-Registered participant will recieve a galactic medal and t-shirt. They'll race around the track while Jedi and Stormtroppers fight around them. Get pictures with the Star Wars characters and make sure to participate in the costume contest! Enjoy the Award Ceremony, and lots of other activites!
