NYC is known for it’s strange, crazy, and random events. Here’s one of them.
If you have ever been to NYC it is pretty much guaranteed that you will see at least one if not 10, crazy things on your trip. There is so much to see and do; inspiring cultures and cuisines surrounding you, that it is hard to do it all in just one go. However, one of the most random events I have encountered recently is NewMindSpace’s Light Saber Battle.
NewMindSpace is pretty well known for its outdoor events including an annual Pillow Fight in Union Square around April, a Bubble Battle, and the Light Saber Battle. I attended the Light Saber Battle this year, which happened in September in Washington Square Park. A Star War geek’s dream and a local photographer’s canvas combined as the night lit up with dancing lights.
