Zoo Knoxville Star Wars Character Day This Saturday 3/1/8/17


If you have Star Wars fans this is a great way to wrap up Spring Break!

Meet your favorite “Star Wars” characters without making a trip to a galaxy far, far away! On Saturday, March 18, from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., Star Wars characters will be meeting fans and posing for photos at Zoo Knoxville.

The day will also feature a Jedi Training Camp that includes light saber training and special instructions on how to use The Force, allowing each child to leave a certified Jedi knight.

Visitors are encouraged to wear their own “Star Wars” attire to celebrate the occasion. Children ages 12 and under who come dressed as their favorite Star Wars character will receive $5 off a child’s admission. (Star Wars Character Day discount cannot be combined with any other discount or offer.) The opportunity to meet “Star Wars” characters is included with general zoo admission.

Zoo Knoxville will bring the big screen to life with help from the MidSouth Garrison of the 501st Legion, the preferred costuming organization of Lucasfilm Ltd., producer of the “Star Wars” film series. This special zoo event is presented by Food City.
