The triumphant return of Star Wars Day has been announced by this city in Illinois.

The Greatest Movie Franchise Of All Time

When it comes to the greatest movie franchise of all time, there is one that I believe stands above and beyond everything else. That is Star Wars. Of course, I am a huge fan. I do not even mind the prequels.

Star Wars Day Returns To Illinois

We have not been able to enjoy some of our favorite events and activities for a couple of years. It is great to see many of them return including one of the more popular ones in Illinois. That is Star Wars Day in Joliet. The last time it was held was in 2019. Hosted by the Joliet Public Library, they had announced that it would permanently not come back after a couple of years off.

Luckily, there was a change of heart and earlier this week there was a special announcement. The 11th Star Wars Day will happen on June 4th from 11 am to 4 pm in downtown Joliet. Thousands of fans from all over the world attend the event every year.
