Jedi vs Sith Lightsaber Battle Near You

December 15, 2015

May the force be with you!

At Burning Man in 2007, my son and husband rushed off to the Man: rumour in Kidsville was an epic light saber battle was going to take place and they were giving out over 10,000 light sabers to do so! Indeed, Watto’s junk yard provided 11,000 lightsabers for the ultimate Jedi battle on that Thursday night!


Pick a side of the force and use that venerable, ancient, glowing tool: the lightsaber, in the ultimate nocturnal showdown this weekend!

It’s a massive battle of Jedi vs. Sith in Los Angeles, SF, NYC, and other cities  on Star Wars Episode VII opening weekend with up to 2000 warriors expected in New York City and Los Angeles. All ages welcome to this FREE EVENT.
In LA on 12/18, gather at 8p, split into Jedi and Sith at 9p, and let the battle will begin.
