With May the 4th just around the corner, it only seems right to start planning all of your Star War celebrations right now. Plenty of places around the Metroplex may have bar crawls and trivia nights but the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas will host a massive Star Wars celebration that you do not want to miss out on.
On May 4th and 5th all throughout the day, the museum will be hosting a variety of activities related to the iconic movie. For the two days, the museum will be blasting the movies greatest hits which means there is a chance for you to walk through the giant front doors while the Imperial March starts playing. Now that is living the dream.

There will also be a Tatoo-ine Parlor that will have temporary tattoos so you can rep your side of the force even if it's just for a day. The museum will have 3D printed lightsabers that you can purchase for only $3 each and yes, they do glow.
Of course, the Perot couldn't let go of the chance to each us the coolest science. During the event, they will have stations where you can discover the crystals that make up a lightsaber or the closest things we have to it. You will also have the chance to explore space and find out how we might be able to discover life on other planets.
If all of those activities aren't enough, you can catch a lightsaber battle in the plaza! Just make sure to not get caught in the crossfire or you might end up like Darth Maul in the movie series.
All of this is free for museum guests with general admission. Tickets are only $20 for non-members, and to make thing even better, the museum will have showings of Star Wars: Episode VII, The Force Awakens, and Star Wars: Episode VIII: The Last Jedi but those will be an additional viewing charge of $8 per person.
