We have been invited, along with GT, to participate in the Neptune Festival Grand Parade along Atlantic Avenue.

The parade starts at 11:30 AM and ends at 1 PM, rain or shine. We don't have the queue up location or times just yet (I will continue to update as more info comes in). Our applications are due to the group by the end of March.

We can have a vehicle for each group. Do we want to treat this parade like we do the Richmond parade: a truck for droids and a possible Chewie and let GT arrange a truck for Vader and Palpatine?

Even if you don't have an approved costume for the parade, sign up anyway and come be our sideline photographer! Droid Builders and Mercs, contact me so I can send you the parade application as well. There's room for all of us!

If available, please sign up below with the costume you'll be wearing so we can avoid duplicates of any face characters. I'll either do generic Jedi or X-Wing Pilot. Thanks!

I know this is early, but is there anyone in Hampton Roads with an open bed pick-up that would be interested in driving in the Neptune Festival Parade on 09/29/18? Slap a banner on your truck and maybe we've got someone that would want to ride in the back if their costume isn't walking friendly?

We will be walking the parade with GT, the Droid Builders and the Mando's. Here's the latest info from Danny:



The parade is Saturday, September 29, and will step off promptly at 11:30 AM on Atlantic Avenue on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.

All units will line up on Atlantic Avenue. Our unit number is 027, and our assembly location is on the West side of Atlantic Avenue, between 12th and 14th Streets. When you arrive at the oceanfront, please turn right (south) on Pacific Avenue and follow it to the traffic light at 5th Street. Turn left on 5th, then immediately left onto Atlantic Avenue. Proceed north to 9th Street, where you will find registration and check-in tables. Motorized units or floats will be escorted from that point to assembly locations.
(* Deb this is where you head with the Fett mobile)

(* Troopers will park inside the 9th Street garage together as best we can and change there. Then walk to our staging area 12-14***)

Marshals will have a brochure listing municipal and private parking locations at the beach. The parade route will be closed to traffic for the 8k race until 9:00 am, but we are encouraged to arrive as early as possible after 9:00am to avoid last minute confusion.

The parade route is from Atlantic Avenue and 16th Street north to 33rd Street and Atlantic Avenue. The reviewing stand is located at 25th Street and Atlantic. Please DO NOT stop to perform - it will disrupt everything behind us. When we have passed the reviewing stand and reach 33rd Street, parade disassembly staff will assist us in moving off Atlantic Avenue. We MUST keep moving since other units are right behind us. City busses will be parked along the Avenue and on side streets, if you’ll be boarding them at parade’s end. Deb and the Fett mobile will continue north and exit Atlantic Avenue onto Pacific at the traffic light at the Cavalier Hotel.
(* We will all have to coordinate together the day of to carpool and have some vehicles parked at the end where ever we can)

Please remember, parking on Atlantic Avenue between 33rd and 40th Street is for busses only. Vehicles picking up parade participants may not park at the end of the parade route.

** EVENT LEAD: Danny Redman
I will assemble all handlers to brief the parade setup. We will form up in a loose but uniform formation and march down the street. handshaking etc is encouraged and even i momentary photo op when possible but Troopers need to stay together as best as possible. Do NOT straggle behind taking photos etc. Handlers should keep an eye on the formation and keep it together if it starts to break up.
