Star Wars Day 2017 in Singapore: The Force is Strong at Supertree Grove

Star Wars Day 2017: May the 4th Be With You at Gardens by the Bay

Star Wars fans will have much to cheer about for Star Wars Day 2017. This year, a three-day STAR WARS Day: May the 4th Be With You festival will be held at the Supertree Grove, Gardens by the Bay, in conjunction with Star Wars Day 2017.

May the 4th is celebrated as Star Wars Day by the legions of fans around the world. The date was chosen as it resembles the Jedi catchphrase, “May the Force be with you”.
