May the boat be with you: Celebrate Star Wars Day on a Bangkok party cruise

One need not travel to a galaxy far, far away to argue over whose Chewbacca costume is best. Instead, set sail on the mighty Chao Phraya River next month for a celebratory cruise of all things Star Wars on May the 4th, aka Star Wars Day.

Bangkok Island will host a Star Wars-themed party on its party cruise boat for fans of the sci-fi mega franchise to drink, play board games, join a Jedi vs. Sith free-for-all cosplay contest, and argue over who shot whom first or whether midichlorians are responsible for the Force.

Music will also be on deck, and we can only hope it’ll feature some Mos Eisley cantina music performed by genuine jizz-wailers, as they are actually called in canon.

The free event starts at 4:30pm and ends at 11pm. The boat can be boarded at Bangkok Dock opposite Charoen Krung 57.
