Event Name: Star Wars Day at Christmas in the Park
Venue: Christmas in the Park - Plaza de Cesar Chavez
Venue address: Market and Park Street in Downtown. San Jose, CA
Event Date: Sunday, December 8th 2013
Event Time: 12:00pm - 5:00pm
Website: http://www.christmasinthepark.com

Requested number of characters: 10
Requested character types: All (Shared event with the 501st)

Comments: For the second year, Christmas in the Park has received permission from Lucasfilm to hold a special Star Wars day at our event. Last year we received great press on a very rainy day, so this year with the Tech Museum Star Wars Exhibit directly across from our event, we hope to draw even larger attention and crowds. Characters will be walking around and Star Wars music will be playing.

I'm pretty sure I am going to make this my first troop. Do we RSVP here or is there somewhere else to register? I'm not 100% but I will definitely know more closer to December.

Yes, posting here is how you RSVP for the event. If you have to cancel please let us know next week.

I'm trying to get extra details on exactly where you should go, who you should ask for, where your changing area is - etc.

Parking Info: Parking for this event is in city lots, and you are not being reimbursed for paid lots.

Suggestion #1 - Park in the structure across the street from the Tech museum next to Morton's. If you buy anything at Peggy Sues diner they will validate your parking. Eventsif you just get a drink or dessert.

Event Organizer says: There is a parking garage located on Park street at Market. There is also parking in the Fairmont Hotel garage, another lot off San Fernando at Market Street. Two more outdoor lots also near by.

Questions:

When are 501st members trooping that day? I do not know and may not have time to look it up. Just pick a shift.

Is there a fee to get in? It is just a street carnival sort of thing open to the public. You only have to pay if you go on carnival rides.


What do we do? Pose for photos with guests. Be professional at all times, behave as though you are a hired employee and character. Please read up on our event guidelines posted in our Endor base forum as a sticky post

Who is our contact at the event? I am trying to get an answer on this.

Is there a RL booth? No, this is not likelya convention. We are just there for photo ops with guests.

Can I being my family? As far as I know this is a free public event, and people only pay for rides. Read the faq at their official web site But if you are trooping then you can not be responsible for your children while doing your "character interaction" with the public. Another adult not trooping the event must attend to your family while you work. If a spouse or friend comes along to check out the free public event, they need to give you space and let you do your character work and photo ops.

http://christmasinthepark.com/faq.html for all the faq about the event. We are not there to go on rides, so if you choose to change after your shift and go on rides you need to pay for that.

PLEASE EXCUSE MY TYPOS, MY PHONE IS VERY TOUGH TO USE WITH THIS FORUM. THANKS.

More Info:

When you arrive at the carnival you can ask for Jason, or head straight to the Tech Museum – that is the changing area. If you go straight there, have ask for Pete Adams. Once dressed, you can walk around the park, or stay in the main area – near the giant Xmas tree.

Just wanted to say I had a great time yesterday. Got there about 11:00 to meet our contacts and get changed in time for noon. Met Vincent from our base and a bunch of folks from GGG. Everyone was amazingly nice. I left about three, wish I could have stayed longer but have an hour and a half drive and all.

Can't wait to troop more down the road.

By the way, Kay-Dee: The gentleman from Cristmas in the Park asked me about donations and I told him I honestly couldn't answer because I wasn't completely sure and to contact our base. I assume they could make donations in our name to a charity we work with or something. For future reference, what's the official RL answer to a we soon like that?

I'm glad you had a great time. It would depend on who was asking you about the donation. If it was our contact Jason who worked for the event, then best for him to get back in touch with me. I was not aware they might be able to make a donation. That would be excellent!

Do you have a list of who besides yourself and Vincent made it from Rebel Legion? Just so I can keep track when it comes time for our census in January on who has done an event to stay active, and who has not. Thanks Smile

It was Jason who asked.

As far as the list, there was someone there (I assume from the Tech museum) who took a list. I know me and Vincent were there. My wife said she saw another Jedi but I didn't see who it was. Sorry.
