This was a very small parade, but they did an AWESOME job with it. The parade started at 2:00, but we only had to be there at 1:00, and some of us got there a little later than that. We didn't have to arrive 3 hours beforehand. We had the council room to change in. That room was big enough to fit the SCC group, and still have room. The line-up went very smoothly.

The parade route was not very crowded at all, but Carnegie isn't very big. It was about a mile long, maybe 1.5 miles. At the end, they provided food and drinks. Different groups had different stuff. A few gave out hot dogs, one had Eat 'n' Park Smiley cookies, and the VFW provided lunch. We even had the option of getting a ride back to the starting spot. Ari and I walked back, and made a few friends along the way by taking pictures.

The only down side was that we were only announced as "The Rebel Legion, and some Stormtroopers." We need to work on that.

It was pretty hot, but there was a decent breeze at times and it didn't rain.

Sounds awesome, I gotta get out there and troop with you guys again sometime, haven't done something with ghost base since Josh Murphy was CO.

As far as the "Rebel Legion and some storm troopers" I don't see the problem, normally it's "the 501st and some rebels" props on getting recognition above our big sister group for once!
