Star Wars Lightsaber Battle 2011, Washington Square Park, New York City - 09.24.11
This was so much fun!!!
Once the lightsabers were distributed, the crowd split up between Jedi and Sith. The groups started chanting, “Jedi! Jedi! Jedi!” “Sith! Sith! Sith!” At the count of three, the lines charged and the battle began and everyone started hitting anyone with a different colored lightsaber. It was all good natured even though there were big rushes of Jedis and Sith. Jr. had a blast fighting everybody and their grandmother. After about an hour and some pretty fierce wacking (ha ha), everyone was pretty spent (heh heh) and the battles broke up into smaller groups. Then the real GEEKS came out and started to demo battles. Jr. was tuckered out so we bailed. A great Star Wars memory created out of nothing by the wonderful people at NewMindSpace.
