This event was fabulous. We had glorious weather (hardly a cloud in the sky and a nice breeze, even if it got a bit warm towards the end) and a very enthusiastic crowd.

Parking was a little tricky, but we managed to get relatively close. Our changing tent wasn't huge, but we had enough room for the 4 of us.

We were all dressed and ready to head out at about 8:45 AM, and we were immediately stopped for pictures. The walk started at 10:00, and I don't think that we went 2 minutes between 8:45 and 10 without taking a picture (other than a short water and maintenance break at 9:30). It was hard to tell whether the kids or adults were happier to see us. The event host and workers also expressed their gratitude, and some also asked for pictures.


There were about 15 giant cardboard boxes with free body pillows for people to take. After the walkers had their pick, we grabbed some to give out on hospital visits. We got 1 bigger one with Kylo Ren and 4 smaller ones with the Imperial Cog. They ran out of the BB-8 pillows.

We might make the news. KDKA was there. They announced that they raised $750,000.
