May The 4th Be With You
I just came from a Star Wars lightsaber battle charity event at Fremont Park in Midtown Sacramento. I don’t even know who the charity was. I just saw more and more peeps coming into Naked Lounge coffeehouse with lightsabers. Today is May 4, Star Wars Day. I asked a gal, “Hey, where’d you get the lightsaber?” She said, “At the lightsaber battle across the street [at Fremont Park.]” I turned around from my coffee and laptop to look… and there were hundreds of people all with electric lightsabers lighting up the dark. It was really cool.
As I walked across the street to check it out, I opened up SnapChat and started Snapping: There were parents with their kids. Peeps in costumes. The park was filled with laughs, lights and fun everywhere. Then I swiped the screen looking for this charity event’s SnapChat goefilter. There wasn’t one. I confirmed there was no SnapChat Geofilter with the event coordinators who were selling $10 lightsabers and $20 t-shirts for this charity event.

Geofilters Brand Your Event and Make Your Guests Feel Special
My friend Romi Sunga attended a friend’s wedding that had a custom SnapChat Geofilter that read: “Congratulations Bren & Stacy 04/08/2016.” A very special way to mark the occasion for the couple, and for their guests.
