KNOXVILLE — You will have an opportunity to meet your favorite “Star Wars” characters without making a trip to a galaxy. On Saturday, March 21st, from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., “Star Wars” characters will be meeting fans and posing for photos at Knoxville Zoo.

The day will also feature a “Jedi Training Camp” that includes light saber training and special instructions on how to use The Force, allowing each child to leave a certified Jedi knight.

Wear your own “Star Wars” attire. Children ages 12 and under who come dressed as their favorite Star Wars character will receive free admission with a paid adult admission (limit one free child admission per adult admission). The opportunity to meet “Star Wars” characters is included with general zoo admission.

Knoxville Zoo will bring the big screen to life with help from the MidSouth Garrison of the 501st Legion, the preferred costuming organization of Lucasfilm Ltd., producer of the “Star Wars” film series.

Knoxville Zoo is located off exit 392A from Interstate 40.
