Photos and video from Star Wars day at Nationals Park, including the racing presidents epic battle vs the dark side

IMG_8133IMG_8132IMG_8131Temperatures hovered around 100 degrees Saturday night, but that didn’t stop a sellout crowd from joining in the fun on the second annual Star Wars Day at Nationals Park.

Star Wars themed organ music and graphics punctuated the night, costumed fans were featured on Nats HD, and dozens of costumed characters roamed the concourse, adding to the fun.

In the fourth inning presidents race, the rebel alliance finally beat the dark side in an epic presidents race battle, but the mascot team once again forgot the golden rule to always let the wookie win.

Presidents George Washington and William Howard Taft set up along the first base line dressed as Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma, determined not to let anybody from the rebel alliance get through.

Teddy Roosevelt (Chewbacca), Abe Lincoln (Rey), Thomas Jefferson (Fin), and Herbert Hoover (Poe Dameron) charged forward from the outfield, where they scuffled with Taft (Phasma).

After three presidents went down, Jefferson (Fin) and Lincoln (Rey) took turns taking on Washington (Ren) in a light saber battle for the finish.
