SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - It's a "holiday" San Diegans are more than happy to celebrate.

May 4th marks "May the Fourth," a day fans celebrate everything Star Wars. The day is named after the films' commonly uttered line "may the Force be with you."

In a city where Comic-Con reigns supreme and Luke Skywalker himself, actor MarkHamill,is a former resident, it's no surprise America's Finest City is one of the best regions to mark the occasion.
