Mississippi Aquarium hosted ‘May the Fourth be with You’ festivities

‘May the Fourth be with You’ as it is National Star Wars Day. The Mississippi Aquarium is shifting its focus from the aquatic side to the dark side.

On Tuesday, they honored the holiday with special appearances from all of the Star Wars favorites.

The aquarium is home to over 200 different species, some looking other worldly, making it what some consider the perfect spot for an intergalactic get-together. Star Wars fan Toni Adkins-Riepl said, “It’s great. We have memberships here so we come here all the way. This is extra special. We’ve seen Vader. We’ve seen Chewbacca. We’ve seen Princess Leia. A little bit of everybody. It’s been fantastic.”

The Mississippi Aquarium is open every day from 10 to 5. They’re hoping to make the Star Wars festivities an annual event.
