As you all know the cities of Gatlinburg, Pegion Forge, and others were nearly destroyed by wildfires last year. Many people lost their homes or businesses because of these fires. I have brought it up to the MSG command staff for us and our brothers and sisters in other SW csotuming organizations to too participate in this yrs parade to bring some Star Wars cheer to the people of Gatlinburg and surrounding areas. This will be to see how many members would like to participate in this parade. I am working out the info with what we would need to do to bring smiles to these people.



It would be see a great deal of imperials, jedi, mandos, mercs, Rebels, and sith participate this.

The parade will be a 2 mile stretch in Downtown Gatlinburg starting at 7:30 PM. With over 65,000 people looking on.

(Right now this is just to see how many would be interested in. We are also working out hotel spots and even looking at a large cabin to rent. More info on this to come later.)

It is very possible that I could be available for this. And if kids were allowed to troop with us for this event, I could enlist my son who does Ezra Bridger.

I don't think it will hurt but I'll call the Gatlinburg Chamber and see.

Since multiple Star Wars costuming groups I'm hoping wants to participate in this and do not want to offend any of the groups I am having us under one flag. So as result, I contacted LFL and we can used the name The Star Wars Fans Community and they are okay with it.

I might be able to do this, since I'll already be in town for Yama-Con. I could do either Leia or Rey, or my TK if I get it done in time.

I am asking members to show up at 5PM for they stop traffic at 6PM so I do not want anyone to get stuck somewhere.

We are meeting at the Little House of Pancakes.

I am going up a day early to secure a room next to the starting point for people to change and store totes.

I am currently working with someone to get us a way back to the starting point.
More of this to come later.

Oh I have checked with the Gatlinburg Chamber of Commerce and due to a insurance liability children are not allowed to be in the parade unless on a float.

If you are looking for a room at the start of the parade go here is the phone number for the closes motel at the starting point.

8654367816

It is $90.00 a night.

I will plan on Boba, unless someone else wants it. Or if I have Poe pilot costume done. I think Melissa and Jadyn will be with me. Where should they be or wait? Or need banner/flag carriers? What is the age of a "child"?Jadyn is 14. I would be coming up that day and would have to aim to be there between 4-5 since I lose an hour.

Kevin that sounds awesome.

About children I'm going to talk with them this week.

Boba no one has sign up yet for it.

Thanks, would be awesome.

On banners not sure yet.

I do have flags representing the 501st, Rebel Legion, and The Dark Empire.

Good news I have chatted with our contact and as long as the child is 10 or older, in costume, and with adult supervision they can be in parade.

I'm working on a place for everyone can park. Right now the starting point is at. However, I'm trying to secure parking and changing area.

807 East Pkwy, Gatlinburg, TN 37738


Btw so news we do have a bus to take people back to the starting point.
