Chicago - McD’s Thanksgiving Parade 11/25/10

Postby Remo » Wed Dec 01, 2010 2:50 am

This Parade is an annual Chicago tradition and is broadcast nation-wide on the WGN network.

A quote from the Tribune read, " The 77th annual McDonald's Thanksgiving stepped off at 8 a.m. with a whirl of barechested Hawaiian flamethrowers, Budweiser Clydesdales, more the a dozen marching bands and a team of Star Wars stormtroopers."

This event was something I was really excited for. I have watched since I was a kid and now watch with mine.


It was really touch and go with our participation, but I'm very happy we managed to get so many troopers to come out at nearly the last minute on such a big holiday. And some having to travel far that day. So thank you again.

This was the second time the Legion has appeared in this parade, but not consecitively.

The members involved were
Remo
ID3052
TK3446
SL3193 (Our Dark Lord of the morning)
TKvanB
Rebel Doughboy
crix
Schph Gochi
Whinter
TB 0101

Vadersblade
iam8114
Zombie_Bunny
IronManAtArms
CarrieDee
Hyper (Thanks for being MWG for the day)
TS826 (He really does exist)
And thank yous to Darcy for being a Jedi and Ashly for being our eyes and ears and for being our photog.


Originally we were going to be walking with our very own SW related balloon (Darth Stewie) but there was a tear and he was sent away. We still made quite an impressive picture with 19 MWG/RL members marching for the city's enjoyment.

We did take some damage that day as TB101's bucket was broken during an Ewok ambush and RDB had a major leg injury. Both members continued on bravely.

Here is the link to the original thread.
