Star Wars fans invited to a fun day of activities


All Star Wars fans who are strong in the Force are invited to join the Town of Danville on Saturday, May 4, 2019 to celebrate the fourth annual May the 4th Be With You event.

Each year this fantastic event continues to grow and evolve, and this year is no different. For the first time, families can enjoy Pancakes with the Jedi at the Danville Community Center.  There will be two sessions available: 8:15 a.m. - 9:15 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.  Cost is $5 per person. Visit www.danville.ca.gov/recguide to register.

For those with Star Wars Halloween costumes, or who just like to sport their inner Jedi, sign-up for the Costume Contest at the Village Theatre for the chance to win some out of this world prizes. Sign-ups end by 4:45 p.m. on May 4, 2019. The contest runs from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. Costumes are strongly encouraged at all activities throughout the day. For those that don’t have a Star Wars costume, but would like to celebrate, May the 4th Be With You t-shirts will be on sale for $10 per shirt at the Danville Community Center, 420 Front St.

During the day we will have plenty of other ways for Jedi to celebrate as well. 

Scavenger Hunt - 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.: stop by the Danville Community Center to pick up a free scavenger hunt card and start looking for famous Star Wars characters at participating Downtown Danville businesses. The first 100 participants to complete the hunt will receive prizes from a galaxy far, far away!
