The 53rd Annual Grape & Wine Festival Grande Parade is being held on Saturday, 25 September in St. Catharines ON. Minutes from Niagara Falls. Once again Young Jedi Niagara will be in the parade and once again all the regional chapters of Fanforce, the 501st and the Rebel Legion are invited to join us! Last year we had close to 70 costumed people in the parade and despite the weather we all had a great time. More details will follow but here is a summary: Saturday, 25 September, 2004 from 9:00 am until ??? Parade start is 11:00 am, depending on where we are in the parade we are usually finished by around 1:00 pm Cost: $10 The fee is to cover the rental of a school for gathering/changing/eating. We will be providing food and drink. Any "profit" goes directly to our charity, Women's Place St. Catharines, along with unused food. More details are to come including hotel information, crash space information, detailed directions and the like. What we need right now is a basic head count of who is interested. Please PM me with any questions. I'll answer them when I return from Dragon*Con next week. Belated edit: Fixed the year.
