Take a trip to ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­a galaxy far, far away right here in Coronado by visiting the Star Wars Fest on Friday, July 29th in Tidelands Park.  Fans of the Star Wars series will delight in the free activities offered by the Coronado Recreation Department starting at 5:00pm in Tidelands Park.

There will be Light Saber Training, a Jedi Obstacle Course, Jedi Mind Trick Training and other games and contests.  Children can make a variety of Star Wars crafts, jump in the Star Wars Jumpees, get their face painted and decorate Princess Leia’s Cinnamon Buns.  Participants are encouraged to dress as their favorite character from any episode of Star Wars to walk in the Star Wars Costume Parade.  Activities continue until 8:00pm when the grand finale of the event, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is shown on the Big Screen. 

The seventh film of the series, Disney’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens takes place 30 years after the defeat of the Galactic Empire, as it follows Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron’s search for Luke Skywalker, the last of the Jedi Knights.  This film received five Academy Award nominations and stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega.
