California Legislature Officially Declares May the 4th “Star Wars Day”. According to THR, in honor of the fan established ‘holiday’ the State of California put to a vote and declared May 4th to officially be “Star Wars Day.”
Before getting too political on the matter, please note there was a serious side to this vote.
During discussions about matters of the state, California legislation acknowledged that Disneyland Resort will soon be opening up its biggest expansion since the parks creation, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and the new land is projected to bring an estimated $14 million in tax revenue to the City of Anaheim annually. So this was indeed a cause for celebration for the insolvent state by its government.
During the voting session it was also acknowledged that The Walt Disney Company has a “decades-long record of enhancing the quality of life for people in California and beyond” and they wanted to do something in celebration of the ‘neighborly’ relationship between TWDC and The State of California.
To mark the special occasion a charity group dressed as Stormtroopers from the Star Wars franchise gathered at the states Capitol and a hot air balloon in the shape of Yoda was flow from the Capitol Building steps.
Now that it’s official (at least in California), Happy Star Wars Day, Everyone, and May the 4th be with you!
