[ARCHIVED] May the 4th Be With You Goes Virtual

May the 4th Be With You

Annual Star Wars celebration goes virtual

This year marks the 5th year of the Town’s annual May the 4th Be With You celebration. Due to the ongoing Shelter in Place Order, the event will look different, but it will be just as much fun.

Virtual events will include a Star Wars LEGO Building Contest, the First Order’s Most Wanted List, Costume Contest, the BB-8 Reverse Scavenger Hunt, and Jedi Training with the one and only Andy Zandy. Participants can also find the force with Star Wars crafts, trivia and much more. In addition, to help motivate everyone to get outside and stay healthy, the 12 Parsecs Kessel Run Challenge will be held in May.

With the Kessel Run Challenge, participants can sign up online and then over ten days they must log in 21 miles of walking, running, hiking or biking over 10 days to complete the challenge.  Sign-ups for the Kessel Run begin on May 5 (Revenge of the 5th).

Information on the May the 4th Be With You events will be promoted through the Town of Danville’s social media channels, so make sure to follow the Town on Instagram and Facebook.
