Hundreds of Star Wars geeks gather for an epic lightsaber battle

The clash between the Jedi and the Sith continued last weekend in New York City's Washington Square Park, with an epic lightsaber battle between hundred of geeky warriors.

The crowds showed up dressed as Sith Lords, Jedi Knights, even the odd zombie and a Pikachu or two, to do epic battle. Lightsaber experts were on hand to train the Younglings, while some gave demonstrations of their skills.

Watch the video, and you'll see that everyone appeared to be having a superb time. No word however on whether the Dark side or the Light side prevailed.
