    The 501st and Rebel Legion will once again march the St. Patrick's Day Parade [face_good_luck] in Detroit.

    Details from TI-1800:
    "Like in years past, we'll be walking/marching/sauntering down Michigan Avenue in Detroit on Sunday, March 11, through the Corktown district. A little scary, but not as bad as the neighboring cracktown areas.

    The $100 entry fee is still in effect.

    I've invited the Rebel Legion as well, and I think this year, RL can take point and lead the way (501st led last year).

    Members of Jedi Knights of Cleveland have come up in years past, and we were joined by other Ohio Garrison members last year, so if folks could spread the word around to neighboring Garrisons and Bases, that'd be awesome."

    I came up for this event from Chicago....it was great to meet a few of your Detroit Fan Force....
    I had a great time...and as a buff of history...I LOVE the Corktown neighborhood with the great old homes from the 1800's....I spend as much time looking at the buildings as the costumes...

    I will be back to post a link of photos tomorrow...

    Thank you again for a great time Detroit!

    Great photos!

    I'm really bummed I didn't at least go down as non-costumed support. I will try to work on Jon's photos within the next couple of days. :D

    this was a great day - lots of spectators got the message that Star Wars is forever.

    and thanks so much for sharing those pics...yours are tons better than mine although I did get little-type Yoda in a really cute photo.

    Nice to meet the entire crew...and we had great Anakin, and roller Trooper.
