Lightsabers Clash During ‘Star Wars’ Flash Mob in Dupont Circle

The sound of clashing lightsabers could be heard in Dupont Circle around noon today. But it wasn’t the start of an intergalactic battle, it was a flash mob jointly organized by Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets and Fantom Comics.

A crowd of about a dozen people swung sabers and attempted to use the force on each other during the melee.

Some onlookers gawked and laughed. Others joined the fight with borrowed sabers. Though the battle raged on for nearly 15 minutes, miraculously, no lives were lost.
