Meet your favorite “Star Wars” characters at the Zoo

Meet your favorite “Star Wars” characters without making a trip to a galaxy far, far away.  This Saturday, March 22nd, from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., Knoxville Zoo will bring the big screen to life for Star Wars Character Day.  (Special thanks to the MidSouth Garrison of the 501st Legion, the preferred costuming organization of Lucasfilm Ltd., producer of the “Star Wars” film series, for joining us.)    

 Famous “Star Wars” characters including Luke Skywalker, Stormtroopers and Sandtroopers will be meeting fans and posing for photos in the zoo’s East Tennessee Plaza and roaming throughout the zoo.  Visitors are encouraged to wear their own “Star Wars”attire to celebrate the occasion.  The opportunity to meet “Star Wars” characters is included with general zoo admission and free for Knoxville Zoo members.  


May the Force be with you,
