If you're a true Star Wars fan, you've been keeping up with all of the hype surrounding the new trilogy's newest movie, The Rise of Skywalker. The movie is set to hit theatres this Friday, December 20, and in celebration, San Antonio is hosting a holiday event with all things Star Wars the following day! San Antonio's free Star Wars party just a day after the premiere and a few days before Christmas is the gift of a lifetime.
Galactic Holiday is coming to VIBES Event Center in San Antonio on Saturday, December 21 from noon to 9 p.m.
In case you were worried about breaking the bank in order to attend something as cool as this, you no longer have to!
Galactic Holiday is free to attend, and with all of the costume contests they're offering, you may end up actually leaving with money.
Because this event is open to all ages, there's both an 18 and under costume contest, as well as an 18+ costume contest.
If you get first place in the 18 and under contest, you'll win $100. Don't worry, second and third place will also leave with prizes.
The 18+ first place winner will receive $200, and second and third place will receive prizes as well.
There's plenty of characters to choose from, so make sure you're picking the one you know you can have the most fun dressing as.
Aside from the contests, you'll also get to enjoy live entertainment, local artists, vendors, cosplay groups, Star Wars decor, film projections, and more.
If you're looking to upgrade your ticket, you can purchase GA in advance as well as VIP for $20 or $25.
These just might be worth it, because exclusive merch is included.
