Sacramento Kings celebrated their Star Wars night by conducting an adorable Baby Yoda race on Friday, December 13 EST (Saturday, December 14 IST) at the Golden 1 Center. Babies dressed up as Baby Yoda as they raced to the finish line. The Sacramento Kings played against the New York Knicks that night. The Kings lost 103-101.

Alan Fernandes (Tusken Raider in Episode IV: A New Hope), Andrew Nelson (Darth Vader in Special Edition Scenes) and Tim Donaldson (Jawa in Episode IV: A New Hope) were also in attendance. The Kings also organised Star Wars Costume Cam, Chewbacca Cam and Tauntaun Races.
