The force is strong this Star Wars Day, and there's no better place to celebrate the space saga than NYC. 

Sure there are trivia nights for adults and awesome museum exhibits for kids that pay homage to George Lucas' beloved films, but now you can feel like you're in one of the movies thanks to the LEGO's Millennium Falcon PEDICAB. Head to a galaxy far, far away (well, Bryant Park) between 9am–7pm to score a free 10-minute ride on this bad boy.

After nearly 400 hours of work and over 20,000 LEGO bricks, the LEGOmasters were able to create this one-of-a-kind feature for Star Wars fans young and old to experience on this beloved holiday. While you're waiting for your turn, you can even opt for a photo op with Chewbacca (the cherry on top of a perfect celebration). 

Even better? This work of art is in support of a good cause. When you're cruising and posing with Chewie, make sure to use the hashtags #LEGOStarWars and #RoarForChange on social media. By doing so, $1 for each post across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram will go toward UNICEF through May 25. Roar for Change is a global challenge from Lucasfilm that works to support UNICEF and its mission, so this fantastic celebration just got even better.

See you at Bryant Park—find us with Chewbacca taking some sweet selfies. 

First come-first served rides will take place on 6th Ave between 40th and 41st Sts.
