A STAR WARS invasion takes place this weekend at the Strand Shopping Centre in Douglas to celebrate the films’ release on Bluray.
Darth Vader himself will be taking time out from his busy schedule of inter-galactic destruction to judge the colouring competition.
The Star Wars-themed contest starts at 11am for children aged 10 and under. Judging is at 4pm with a prize for the best entry.
An array of Star Wars goodies will be awarded as prizes courtesy of the Modeltech shop.
From 11am to 4pm children of all ages can test their skill and dexterity in a PlayStation gaming competition. Expect mayhem and oppression at 3pm as Darth Vader lowers his sights from universal domination to head a crack team of Stormtroopers invading the shopping centre.
He and his team will be posing with customers for photographs.
The best dressed Star Wars character competition gets under way at 3.45pm. Darth himself will again be judging the winner who will receive the full Star Wars DVD set, which is available from HMV.
Star Wars-themed face painting will also take place for the children from 11am to 4pm. The day takes place on Saturday September 10 at the Strand Shopping Centre in Strand Street.
