Star Wars Day - 2015

What better day to start blogging on Geek Out Fitness than on May the 4th. Star Wars Day. Many of you are probably wondering what that has to do with fitness....well it doesn't have anything to do with fitness, but it is full of geekness. :) I want to share with you a bit about this day and how it came about.

  • In 2011, the first organized celebration of Star Wars Day took place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at the Toronto Underground Cinema. Produced by Sean Ward and Alice Quinn, festivities included an Original Trilogy Trivia Game Show; a costume contest with celebrity judges; and the web's best tribute films, mash-ups, parodies, and remixes on the big screen. 

  • The second annual edition took place on Friday, May 4, 2012. Fans (even government officials) have celebrated Star Wars in a variety of ways in social media and on television.

  • Since 2013, Disney Parks have celebrated the holiday with several Star Wars events and festivities. The Walt Disney Company had purchased Lucasfilm including the rights to Star Wars in late 2012.

  • Minor League baseball teams such as the Toledo Mud Hens and the Durham Bulls have worn special uniforms as part of Star Wars Day promotions.

  • In 2015, Disney made Star Wars Day popular by playing a marathon of the TV series Star Wars Rebels, along with Star Wars-related episodes of other Disney shows on Disney XD during Star Wars Day.
