Hotel Congress Becomes a Haven For Star Wars Fans Tomorrow

Posted By on Fri, May 3, 2013 at 4:04 PM

It may not be Take Your Daughter to Work Day, but it should probably be fun all the same.

Geeks of Tucson, we're going to be busy tomorrow.

Not only is tomorrow Comic Book Day, to be celebrated by shops all around town, but it's May 4th, alternately spelled May in, "May the Fourth Be With You."

In other words, tomorrow is Star Wars Day, and Hotel Congress is going all out to celebrate, even including a 12-ft.-wide Death Star pinata holding 50 lbs. of candy — but don't get your hopes up, as that's only for the kids.

Damned kids.

Bring the whole family early and enjoy a free photo booth, costume & trivia contests, spelling bee, clone wars on the big screen and themed food and drink. Hosted by Max Cannon. There will be Jedi-Training for the kids, craft tables where you can make your own light sabre while snacking on Ham Solo Sandwiches and Obi Won Ton Kenobi’s.


Later a full on Halloween-style party just for the adults with great live music, Star Wars cantina band, costume contest and DJ’s all at the May The Fourth Be With You at Hotel Congress!!

The day event is free, the night event is $3 or free if you are wearing a costume!

The family-friendly event runs from 1 to 5 p.m. The 21-and-over festivities begin at 8 p.m.
