‘The Force’ strong in Naperville during annual Star Wars Day – Chicago Tribune

Star Wars fans young and old were transported to a galaxy far, far away Saturday at Naperville 95th Street .

Star Wars Day, now in its third year, drew hundreds of fans, many in costume. The event featured crafts, “Star Wars” movie showings, games and even Jedi training. Members of the 501st Midwest Garrison appeared in costume, and some suburban fans showed off the droid replicas they built of popular Star Wars characters R2D2 and BB-8.

“It’s awesome,” said Naperville resident Mike Monterubio, who brought his children, Melinda, 6, and Matthew, 7. “Star Wars is a big part of our lives … especially mine.”

While Saturday was a celebration of all things Star Wars, the library carries a wide variety of Star Wars materials year round.
