A Small Town Parade


I always enjoy watching a parade, but I like actually being in the parade better! Yesterday, Padawan and I were excited to march in the Snohomish Kla-Ha-Ya Days Parade. It was a short parade, only 14 blocks, but there was much enthusiasm in the crowd sitting along the main street. Both the adults and kids were thrilled to see the "Star Wars people" in the parade. The little kids were wide-eyed and waving - it was the best!

The 501st was well represented with Darth Vader, of course, an assortment of StormTroopers, bounty hunter Zam Wesell, fighter pilots, a miniature Boba Fett and Darth Revan (a character from Star Wars Unleashed). The Rebel Legion balanced them out with several lightsaber swingin' Jedi and Rebel Fleet Troopers.

I took some shots with my new little point-and-shoot camera. I'm glad I have it, but I sure appreciate my big camera a lot more after using the little one!

Here's some of the better shots from the day.





This was such a fun troop! The next trooping event for us is SpoCon (Sci-Fi & Fantasy Convention) in beautiful Spokane. Yeah, we'll be takin' pics!

Woohoo! Can't wait!
