If the force runs strong in your family then be a rebel and get along to Toowoomba City Library as it is taken over by an empire of fans for Star Wars Day on Saturday January 13th. But beware; Lord Vader may be lurking.
Toowoomba Regional Council Environment and Community Committee Chair Cr Geoff McDonald said this annual event is not to be missed by fans of Star Wars.
“The force will be with you as you join in a range of Star Wars Day themed activities which include a free craft bar, face painting, scavenger hunt and free foam lightsabres for the first 200 people to sign up for library cards on the day.
“The Star Wars Day is a special feature of the Toowoomba City Library’s holiday program,” Cr McDonald said.
“Only on Star Wars Day will you be able to take a lightsabre class with the Sons of Obiwan Academy or share a selfie with your friends back dropped by the double sun-set of Tatooine or get a t-shirt stencilled with a Wookie.
“There is something for all the family in this action-packed blockbuster day.
“Get your face painted like a Sith or enter the Star Wars themed escape room. There is a galaxy of things to do.
According to Cr McDonald, not even a Death Star would keep him away.
“So, if you’re local or from a galaxy far far away, head down to the Star Wars day at the Toowoomba City Library.
Cr McDonald said, “Take the advice of Yoda who would tell you to, ‘Do, or do not. There is no try.’
The Star Wars day will be held from 9.30am to 3.00pm on Saturday 13 January.
