Brace yourselves. May 4th is coming. It's that special day where, suddenly, everyone you know is a Star Wars mega fan and expert.

The best part of May 4th is all of the themed events and costume parties.

The Don Harrington Discovery Center has an amazing event going on where kids will be able to build their own lightsabers, and even get some VR Jedi training thanks to the great folks over at Vault Gaming Center. Vader and some of his storm troopers are going to be there. Check out the event page for more information.

The Sod Poodles will be having a Star Wars inspired night at Hodgetown. There will be Star Wars themed food, merchandise, and there are even special May the 4th jerseys. Check out the Facebook event page for more information.

AAYC is having a Zumba blacklight party to celebrate May the 4th. I honestly think this would be something to see. More information available on the Facebook event page.

If you've been living under a rock, or couldn't be bothered with the insanity that is local politics, you might have missed hearing that voting wraps up on May the 4th for Amarillo local elections.

I guess you could celebrate May the 4th by voting against the Empire...whichever side that is.
