May the 4th is more than just a date on the calendar, it's also a chance to "visit a galaxy far, far away" close to home.
Locally, at least two Star Wars-themed events are set for Friday, May 4.
Rising Sun High School's Library Advisory Committee will host May the 4th Be With You from 3-7 p.m. at the high school.
This free event is open to all Cecil County Public Schools students and their families. There will be video games, trivia games, board games, origami, crafts, kirigami, themed snacks, a movie showing in the school's auditorium, breakout boxes (similar to escape rooms), and a photo booth. There will be costumed visitors.
The Cecil County Historical Society recently joined Elkton's Art Loop.
That partnership has already reaped rewards and the public will benefit.
Paula Newton, president of the historical society, Wanda Owens, from the Daughters of the American Revolution, and Mary Biron, from the Cecil County Heritage Troupe will present an Historic Cemetery Tour for Elkton's First Friday, October 7.
