May the force be with you on the 1st
You may have noticed that there is a new Star Wars film that was released last month, and many people (including staff members at West Linn Parks and Rec department) are hoping to relive that childhood excitement of intergalactic war with your favorite heroes.
However, Rebels and Empire fans alike could use the force and register for Parks & Recreation's Mother & Son Empire event taking place from 6-8:30 p.m. Friday, May 1.
Sons invite their mother, grandmother or female figure for a fun night out. All are welcome to participate.
The fun includes building a light saber and training to be a Jedi knight or, perhaps bomb a Death Star. Maybe you would rather free Han Solo from carbonite. At any rate an epic adventure awaits. Get tickets now.
The original Star Wars series was created by George Lucas in the early 1970s and was resuscitated in the 1990s. The films advanced the field of motion picture special effects with their star destroyers, new characters and planets.
What started out as a low budget science fiction movie has turned into a mega franchise with super fans all over the world.
With such astronomical popularity, early registration for the Mother Son Empire Event is encouraged.
Moms and sons will be treated to fun activities and an intergalactic dinner of Palpatine's pork, Padawan macaroni and cheese and Vader veggies, with Wookie cookies and stormtrooper cakes for dessert.
