Lightsaber Battle Erupts In NYC
Lightsabers will be drawn for battle in New York City later this month.
Monday, May 17, 2010 17:27 GMTNEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) The Force will be strong and in full swing in New York City on May 29.
Thats because New Mind Space is organizing an epic LED lightsaber battle that day at Christie Park in NYC.
The expected 1,000 participants must pick a side to fight for Jedi or Sith then use that venerable, ancient, glowing tool the lightsaber in the ultimate nocturnal showdown.
Attendees can reserve a lightsaber at newmindspace.com for $5, which they can take home after the battle to continue their Jedi training.
Organizer Kevin Bracken expects Star Wars geeks to be out in full force, donning costumes and defeating the world of evil Sith lords.
Since the event will be held guerilla style with no city permits taken out that would make the battle legal Bracken says fighters have to be stealth and ready to run should the cops come along.
Theyre working to iron out any kinks that could result in fines or arrests.© Copyright 2010 Wireless Flash News Inc
