A Penticton resident had a little fun with Photoshop after the weekend parade

A parade enthusiast decided to take some photos and have a little fun after he watched some stormtroopers and Darth Vader march down the street over the weekend.

To continue with this theme and make the smoky skies a little more exciting, Mervin Jones Photoshopped in some different sky views that a few Star Wars fans may be familiar with.

May the force be with your Mr. Jones.
