May the 4th Be With You - STAR WARS Event

Old Downtown Carrollton

In a galaxy not so far away, the City of Carrollton will celebrate Star Wars Day with a free themed event Saturday, May 4 from 5-9 p.m. on the Downtown Carrollton Square (1106 S. Broadway Street).

Bring your lightsabers and come in costume to enjoy extra large galaxy-themed video arcade games, crafts, face painting, balloon twisting, laser tag, and photo opportunities. Stick around at sunset for a free showing of a galactic box-office hit under the stars. “May the 4th Be With You” has something for everyone from the young padawans to the Jedi masters.

Feel the Force and test your skills in an extreme 35-foot interactive laser tag arena. Come early to pick up snacks or dinner from one of the many eclectic Downtown shops or restaurants, work up an appetite, and save the galaxy yet again from the evil empire. A variety of food trucks will be on hand to satisfy appetites with crowd-pleasing treats including cotton candy, snow cones, ice cream, nachos, and funnel cakes.

Stop at the Carrollton Public Library’s booth and strike the perfect pose in front of a Star Wars-themed background for a unique photo op. Take home information on the Library’s Summer Reading Program running from June 1 through August 1 and be sure to save the date Saturday, June 1 for the Library’s Summer Reading Kickoff: C-Con event at Josey Ranch Lake Library (1700 Keller Springs Road) from 1-8 p.m.

Carrollton’s “May the 4th Be With You” event will be held rain or shine. Modifications to the event will be made if rain occurs. Event sponsors include Dallas Medical Center and HelloFresh.
