Morton, IL Pumkin Festival Parade 9-17-11

Post by BLUERAM »

This event started much like last year with troopers arriving at the school with a cool breeze and an overcast sky, but unlike last year it was all sun by the time the parade started providing the perfect weather unlike last years downpour. The citizens in Morton were great, they lined every possible spot of the long parade route and loved us. We heard many shouts of "Vader", "Star Wars", "I Love You" , and several sections erupted into applause as we passed :thumbs: The parade had a Bartlett like feel to it with crowd reactions and shear number of attendees but with the route being easier with no hills and the weather being much more trooper friendly. Definitely looking forward to this parade again next year and hoping the timing works out so we can have greater participation.

Chip Childress SL-9965 Clone Trooper
Ryan Summers TK-2429 Stormtrooper
Rick Divine TK-6712 Stormtrooper
Kent Heath TS-1692 Snow Trooper
Mark Berry BH-4265 Boba Fett

The Vader was Brent who was wearing a rented suit provided by the Chamber of commerce
