Star Wars Day
May 4th is the day that Star Wars fans celebrate a day dedicated to the space movie franchise. The internationally unofficial celebration is derived from the pun on the Star Wars catchphrase “May the Force be with you” to “May the 4th be with you”. Every year, thousands of Star Wars fans around the world get together, ardently wish each other and hold exciting Star Wars events.
As May 4th falls on a working Monday this year, local organisers wisely decided to hold the celebrations during the weekend from 2-3 May. Held at Suntec City, Star Wars fans and cosplay enthusiasts appeared in full force to commemorate the occasion.
There were various artwork, photographs and toys up for display during the two-day festival. Make-A-Wish Foundation Singapore was chosen as the official beneficiary for this event, with more than $21,000 of proceeds donated from the auction of limited edition merchandise like customized Darth Vader helmets and stage photo opportunities. There were also performances by the Jedi Training group Fightsaber, who conducted a Jedi training on stage. The highlight of the event was the appearance of awe-inspiring 501st Legion Singapore Garrison and Rebel Legion who marched in with the Star Wars theme.
