Final updates for the Reston Holiday Parade tomorrow- come out and march with Admiral Ackbar!

::Final Updates::

We are just a few days away now, so get ready for an exciting parade. I just heard from the organizers that the Reston Holiday Parade has been nominated for the "Ten Best Holiday Parades in the Nation," which gives us a cool opportunity to participate in a much-loved community event that's getting some extra exposure.

If anyone has banners we can use, either on the truck or capable of being carried in front, please plan to bring them and let me know ASAP.

Theme: We're not doing anything extraordinary, but do feel free to show your holiday spirit with your costume. My truck will drive with us, and we'll have our little Jawas in the bed enjoying a "traditional" Christmas dinner. Don't inquire too much deeper into that particular tradition. As I said above, banners on the sides of the truck and in front of our group would be nice, but not a make-or-break proposition.

Start and Assembly:

The parade steps off at 11:00. We should try to be assembled around 10. Our slot is #50, and we'll be somewhere on Freedom Dr. (in front of the parking garages).

Changing:

There is a changing area somewhere. That said, I highly recommend changing at your vehicle, or by the truck if you need help (I can fit a bin or two if needed). If you need or would prefer to use the changing area, please go to the parade registration tent next to Crunch Fitness and they can direct you from there.

That's about it. Show up, march, spread some Star Wars holiday spirit. I can be reliably reached via the phone number below with any questions or coordination issues.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

If anyone needs a changing space, my office is a short drive or walk to the parade step-off. There is also parking available there if you have any trouble finding space at Reston Town Center. It's about a 15 minute walk to the step-off site. I plan on changing into and out of Ackbar there (I don't want to have to wear the Admiral's fake beer belly to lunch after the parade), so please contact me if you'd like to change there and we can make arrangements to meet. The building will be locked so we'll need my key card to get in.

I'll arrive by 9 AM, so it is okay to come anytime after that. We are due at the staging area by 10:00 AM, so we will need to leave by 9:40 to get there on time if we're walking over. Please arrive early enough to be ready to leave by 9:40.

Address:
Hanover Insurance Group
12100 Sunset Hills Road, Suite 300

It is located at the intersection of Sunset Hills Road and Town Center Parkway.

With the construction around our building, the best way to get to the parking is to use the entrance on Town Center Parkway. Turn onto Town Center Parkway from Sunset Hills Road and take the first left into the parking lot, turn right immediately and then left immediately to enter the garage. Drive all the way to the top level to park- there is a door on that level that goes right onto the 3rd floor where my office is located.

The exterior doors are locked on weekends, so call me on my cell at 703-232-6962 or at my office number 703-880-3823 when you arrive at the door on the top level of the garage. I will come to meet you and let you in.

I'll see you tomorrow!
