If you didn’t get enough Star Wars at the convention here in Orlando, last month, then the Force will be with you this month at the Orlando History Center.
“Galactic Encounter Day” takes place on Saturday, September 15, 2012, from 10:30am to 3pm.
As with years past, the 501st Legion: Vader’s Fist will march through Heritage Square downtown, beginning at 11am. The parade is free to watch, but I suggest lining up early, as a lot of people show up for this.
After, the History Center will continue the fun with opportunities to build your own light saber; enjoy “Blue Milk,” “Wookie Cookies,” and “Yoda Juice”; and work alongside a LEGO® Master Builder to construct a foot-tall R2-D2 model.
There will also be photo opportunities with Star Wars characters.
Galactic Encounter Day activities are included with general admission to the History Center. Adults are $9, seniors and military are $7, and ages 5-12 are $6.
For more information, visit thehistorycenter.org.
The Orlando History Center is located downtown at 65 E. Central Blvd. Phone is 407-836-8500.
