In New Orleans where there is a parade for everything and anything awesome, the kids get to enjoy some fun with the Shoeboxus (Wookie reference#1) parade held by the International Krewe of Chewbacchus (Wookie Reference #2) It’s an awesome two-fer joke at an interstellar event for an amazing group of younglings. Go out and support the wookie love. Anexandros, our Editor-in-Chief , considers himself the Drunken Style Sith Master and he approves this message of Chewbacchus. 6 p.m., Washington Square Park, Royal and Frenchman Streets, New Orleans.
There is an open-handed Jedi class being offered with the focus on Tai Chi at 6 p.m in the NOMA Sculpture Garden, City Park, 1 Collins Diboll Circle, New Orleans. East Jefferson Wellness Center. The cost is $5, but the benefits to the Empire are infinite. (504) 456-5000. noma.org
SHOEBOXUS PARADE — MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU: Krewe of Chewbacchus presents “the biggest little sci-fi themed shoebox parade in the universe.” They are also holding an after parade party at Handsome Willy’s. We aren’t sure if that is a bar or just some stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking Nerf herder. We’ll let you guys decide if he’s scruffy looking.
It wouldn’t be a day without swinging by the MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU event happening at 4 p.m. at Tubby & Coo’s Mid-City Book Shop where they promise”an afternoon of “Star Wars” fun with readings and other event” Here is the address: (Postal/Net): 631 N. Carrollton Ave., New Orleans. (504) 598-5536.
All the May the Fourth Fun up in New York is focused around Time Square as May the Fourth Be With You( and it’s lesser known, but infinitely more fun Revenge of the Fifth) events stop all the traffic with costumes and Ewok celebrations galore. Just be careful. With Times Square’s early reputation, you might see a small moon.
