City: New York
Join us for a massive battle of Jedi vs. Sith in downtown New York City. Pick a side of the force and use that venerable, ancient, glowing tool: the lightsaber, in the ultimate nocturnal showdown.
This event is 100% free, but if we pool our order we can get the cheapest lightsabers :)
Chrystie Park (F to 2nd Ave.)
Chrystie & Houston, Manhattan

Free and all ages!
This event is being built by Urban Playground Movement NYC. Lightsaber Truck by Newmindspace. Here’s how the lightsaber truck will work: When you reserve a lightsaber, your name will be placed on a list, and an hour before the battle begins, we will start distributing lightsabers for the battle at a table. We will have plenty of permanent markers, so please write your initials on the handle.
Follow these simple rules to make sure everybody is safe:
+ Swing lightly, as there will be many people swinging at once
+ Don’t hit people in the face. This should be pretty obvious.
+ Goggles are stylish and a good way to protect your eyes!
+ When in doubt, tap out.
If you would like to help distribute lightsabers to people who reserved them send us an e-mail at love (at) newmindspace.com :)
