Science fiction fans in Sacramento won’t have to use a mystical force to have a good time when Saber Battle rolls through Midtown on Thursday night, May 4, 2017 from 8 to 10 p.m.
Massive fan-run events in cities from coast to coast have brought together generations of fans to participate in massive saber battles, watch swordplay masters show off expert moves, and dress up as their favorite sci-fi movie characters at a themed party in cities across North America. This May, the fun returns to Midtown Sacramento.
In partnership with the Midtown Association and Visit Sacramento, the fan group Newmindspace aims to bring the fun and free community event, martial arts spectacle, and thousands of glowing sabers to fans of all ages. In December 2015, the group broke the world record for Largest Global Light Sword battle, and this spring aims even higher.
