The Inland Empire strikes back with events celebrating Star Wars Day on Wednesday, May 4. Fans of the franchise gathered from across the galaxy for costumed film screenings, specialty cocktails at bars, youth arts and crafts events at schools and businesses.

The Glen Avon Regional Library in Jurupa Valley hosted its Star Wars celebration, “May the 4th Be With You,” on Wednesday evening. The free community event included “Star Wars” trivia, music, arts and crafts stations and a scavenger hunt. Participants earn an inflatable lightsaber and entered a raffle drawing for a “Mandalorian” Funko Pop giveaway.

Stormtroopers — members of the Inland Empire Squad of the Southern California Garrison of the 501st Legion — interacted with fans learning the ways of the force.

The Glen Avon library will also be hosting a Star Wars paint night on Wednesday, May 18, where participants can paint Baby Yoda.

San Bernardino County Library hosted Star Wars digital events this week, including a virtual story time with characters at 2 p.m. on Thursday, May 5. To register: 760-552-6050.
