If you’re anything like us at Toyota of Orlando, you are mega fans of the hit movie series “Star Wars.” Ever since the first movie came out in 1977, it’s been a pop culture phenomenon and we have a feeling that it will continue to grow in popularity when the seventh installment premieres in 2015! If you are a fan, you know May 4th as Star Wars Day all thanks to the funny saying ‘May the Fourth Be with You’! As you know, Orlando is known for hosting pretty fun events and our community has come up with a fun event for this pop culture unofficial holiday!
Audubon Park (on the east side of town) has designed a Sip and Stroll event for guests to enjoy May 4th (which is this Sunday). Check out how guests will be able to celebrate this day—even if they’re not at Mos Eisley!
May the Fourth be with you at Audubon Park
Like we’ve mentioned in past blog posts, we absolutely love the fact that events such as this sip and stroll happen in our very own back yard! Audubon Park boasts some pretty incredible restaurants, so you can only imagine just how delicious this intergalactic event will be! Check out what Jedis and Siths will be able to enjoy on this day!
- In true Star Wars fashion, guests will be able to enjoy some delicious treats from the Whompa Chompa food truck! If you’re a fan, you know Wampas as the creatures from planet Hoth. This food truck actually uses one as a mascot so your food will definitely fit in to the festivities.
- This event will actually be the community’s first Sunday Sip and Stroll event, so it’s definitely going to be a memorable one! Local bakery, Blue Bird Bake Shop, will provide adorable Star Wars-inspired cupcakes to guests. You’ll also be able to enjoy delicious treats from Whisk and Bowl, so make sure you Jedis and Siths arrive with your stomach empty!
- Since the event will take place from noon until 3 pm, you’ll be able to have brunch in surrounding restaurants! Red Light Red Light Beer Parlour will also provide the brews and wine, so you’ll be able to stay cool during your Sunday stroll!
In addition to yummy treats and delicious food, some fun will be had as guests are encouraged to dress up as their favorite Star Wars character! There will also be a Star Wars scavenger hunt as part of the Sip and Stroll! It’s set to kick off at Whisk and Bowl, which is located on the Second Floor of the East End Market!
Tickets to this event are $15 in advance and $20 the day of! All donations go to the Audubon Park Garden District’s Native Plant fund, which means your donation will stay in the community!
