When: Friday, 4 May to Saturday, 5 May

Where: F1 Pit Building, Marina Bay

What: May the 4th be with you! Singapore is making a day out of it for the second year, for a family-friendly day of fun that will include costume parades, workshops, and an appearance by 501st Legion founder Albin Johnson and his pink R2-KT. But of course, the highlight of the day (or any day) will be the Star Wars marathon, and we’re not talking about a movie marathon.
