Who needs a warm coat and earmuffs when you have "The Force" on your side?
Star Wars enthusiasts will battle the cold weather Friday night as they wear their favorite Jedis and Sith Lord costumes for a Star Wars-themed gathering in Old City, Philadelphia.
Franklin Square Park, at 6th and Race streets, is hosting "Star Wars Night" where attendees can come in costumes, meet and greet people dressed as their favorite franchise character. The free public event will run from 5:30 to 7:30.
Breaking news and the stories that matter to your neighborhood.
For the full 'Star Wars' experience -- and a chance to warm-up -- attendees can purchase tickets to a Jedi Training session that goes from 4 to 5 in the heated Franklin Square Pavilion. The $15 tickets include a VIP meet-and-greet with Sith Lords Darth Vader and Kylo Ren, followed by a Q&A session and a trivia game.
