    Its that time of year again and we have been asked to participate in the Halloween parade this year in the Village of liverpool.

    Date: Sat Oct 29th
    Time: 9:pm
    Where: Village Liverpool

    we will need to line up at 8 pm for this parade. We are allowed to have a car or a float of some sort in the parade if we need or want one.

    usually they have this in the morning so this time being at night they anticipate a big response all the way around. There is still a festival from 12 -9 pm parade is to follow. Prizes are awarded for costumes this year. YAY!

    They have asked us to march and also volunteer for enbtertainment or ehatever else they may need. I meet with the event coordinator on wed for details on what they have in mind.

    Is anyone up for this? If anyone needs crash space since its a later event let me know.

    :)

    I'm bumping this up since I am meeting with the parade committe today and would really like some "tentative" numbers to submit. We are supposed to go over what our involvement in the festival would entail......

    Anyone up for this? I would really hate to pass up yet another event due to lack of interest.

    I have booked the day off work so hopefully I will get it off. I will be wearing my new and improved mando armour. I will also bring some toy lightsabers that light up. They will be very kewl for the parade at night and I will aslo be bringing some Jedi props to put on the table. A couple of lightsabers, utility belt, that sort of thing.

    Hey guys Im VERY excited! I met with the event coordinator today for the parade and you would not believe what they have offered us.

    Lets just say this is a VERY good opportunity for us to not only help out and raise money for charity but for us to get alot of local exposure and perhaps get the club growing again
    :)

    They are giving us a table for our group. At the table we have been asked to create a game people can participate in and win prizes they supply.
    We will be doing a photo op there they said they can provide a backdrop for us. This will be done for charity. So dust off your costumes and lets have some fun!

    the parade is at night this year and they anticipate about 4,000 people for the one day. thats alot of people in the village.
    We have also been asked to provide a "featured" craft at the craft table if anyone has any ideas please let me know so I can start getting donations for supplies etc.

    We will of course do a 50/50 raffle there and I have a ton of goodies and fun up my sleeve.:)

    They said if we would like to provide some sort of entertainment to pick a time slot and they can accommadate us. So basically we can pretty much run with some ideas and have fun with this.

    They are willing to work with us and help us with what we need providing we help as far as entertainment,volunteers,craft etc.
    Anyone up for this?

    I already spoke with Ian, I called him afterwards like a spaz that I am ;)

    I hope we can get a fair amount of costumed help since they are really excited to have us there :)

    please post if u can go/what costume/ideas etc :)

    I think we already have something for Oct 29th, but I'm not sure what the times are. Hopefully, I'll be able to get more details soon and be able to fine tune my schedule. But, that's just me - feel free to post over on The Rebellion boards if you'd like to see if any of the other folks might be available and willing to make the 1.5 hour drive late at night.

    I am thinking we will need people for the following:

    festival is from 12-9 parade from 9 - 10.

    So........

    we need people to man the table
    Someone to take pics for charity
    someone to follow the costumed help
    and of course costumed help :)


    if anyone would like to sign up for anything or a specific table/activity please post what hours you can work and where. :)

    I'm not a person who commits to things too far ahead of time. However, its possible I and one or more of my group may be able to make it to this, at least for a while. If we do, my guess is the parade would be part of what we do.

    More input from the other members of my family is welcome.

    I assume you mean 8 AM? Or is that a bad assumption?

    Either way, I'm interested. Can probably get the Saturday off for it too.
