IL - North Aurora/60542 - NAMC Parade - SUN 6/1/14

Post by woulf »

We were asked to take part in the NAMC's 5th annual parade. The coordinator for the parade this year was my buddy's girlfriend. She knew I belonged to the 501st and Rebel Legion, and asked if I could wrangle up some members to add a little Star wars to their parade. It was a hot one, and it seemed to take awhile to get moving, but once we were on the street, the people loved us. We were told by more then a few we were the best part of the parade. After the parade, those of us still upright from the heat, hung out at the end in some shade and took some photos with fans before we were shuttled back to our cars.

Many thanks to everyone who came out for this.

Steve, 7345 TK
Ted, 36285 Maul
Aaron, 2875 Vader
Paul, 11222 Boba Fett
Kevin, 2834 TK
Patrick, 10040 Gamorrean

Also thanks to Hawk Worley for wearing Ted's Tie pilot on a nice hot day to boost our numbers, and Dawn Ruler for being our photographer :thumbs:
