Cats in Space Tour Presents Space Battle Sacramento: Don’t call them Lightsabers! These light-up prop swords are “cat blades”. Disney Lucasfilm nixed the “Lightsaber Battle” parties that were happening at parks nationally, so “Cats in Space” arose from the ashes to fill the void. Ain’t gonna stop hardcore fans from wearing their Jedi cosplays! 8 pm to 10:30 pm at Fremont Park. Free, but $10 if you buy one of their cat blades. https://www.facebook.com/events/1542290866069096/
Jezebelle’s Army Presents Space Oddities: This tribute to “Starman” David Bowie and Star Wars will feature unique burlesque performances and live music by Space Walker, Nolan & Live Action Heroes, plus a costume contest. Doors open at 8 pm, Show 9 pm, at Blue Lamp. $10 cover ($8 in costume). https://www.facebook.com/events/1399200833712842/
