At midnight this Friday, the fourth installment in the Twilight Saga hits store shelves, and to celebrate the release (and the marriage of Bella and Edward, of course), select local Target and Wal-Mart stores are hosting sneak-peek parties.
At the Reynolds Road location of Target, tickets for the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 DVD/Blu-ray will be distributed in the women's department near the front starting at 9 p.m. Friday.
The store is offering a deluxe DVD featuring a small prop flower from the movie's wedding scene. A sneak-peek screening of a five-minute clip from Breaking Dawn — Part 2 starts at 11 p.m. The store closes at 1 a.m.
The Hamburg location of Target will not be hosting a Twilight party.
Wal-Mart's release party starts at 11 p.m. at more than 2,700 locations nationally including all four stores in Lexington. To see a list of all stores participating, visit See.walmart.com/moviecenter/twilight-breaking-dawn-pt-1.
Twihards can snag the store's special two-disk Bella's Wedding Special Edition DVD with fabric poster of Bella and Edward's wedding day and music videos from Bruno Mars and Christina Perri.
The festivities include Twilight-themed bakery treats, movie trivia giveaways and more.
"We're excited to give the millions of Twilight fans a place to unite, celebrate and receive exclusive Breaking Dawn collectibles at a great price," said Seong Ohm, a Wal-Mart senior vice president, in a statement.
