May The 4th Be With You, Jedi vs Sith Lightsaber Freeze Mob-Chicago

May 4, 2016 @ 8:15 pm - 9:15 pm

Every Geek with a light saber (no matter what kind) heed our call! Chicago Jedi and EDGE Theatre (MacSith) are holding a Lightsaber Freeze Mob.

This one is sure to be warmer then our December one!

Here are the details. May the 4th we meet at Buckingham Fountain (originally we wanted to do the Bean or somewhere in Millennium Park but we were sure security would boot us out) at 8:15 pm (sunset is at 8pm) costumed participants circle on the west side of the park. Non costumed participants make a circle around them. The Costumed Sith will light up, than the costumed Jedi. They strike a battle pose and than freeze. The non costumed participants count to 15 (1-1000, 2-1000 and so on)Ignite their light sabers and take a battle pose than freeze. We all count to 15 and do one battle pose and freeze for 15 seconds. We do this two more times.We then head out to a new location next to the Harold Washington Library plaza. Repeat. Final Stop, Daily Plaza. Safe, simple and fun. No light saber no problem. Use the force!

Important rules
1) No guns, blaster rifles, blasters. Not of any kind. You come with a replica gun or explosive devise we will call the police immediately.
2) All are welcome. Kids, families, adults, Costumed or non costumed. Make sure your behavior reflects a family atmosphere. You must be sober. You show up drunk, we will call the police.

4) Bring a light up light saber. If you don’t have one, borrow one. (but really, get one, EDGE theatre recommends Ultra sabers This will be done at dark so lights matter.These blades are not seeing combat so it can be a light up toy.
