    Hello everyone!

    As some of you may remember, last spring JCF and I were involved in the St.Louis Renaissance Faire. This week the Faire is volunteering to haul a giant floating balloon through downtown St.Louis in the Thanksgiving Day parade. We?ve requested Humpty Dumpty, there?s some kind of theme there if you think about it for a minute.

    We?re still looking for more people to help out, so if the idea of wrangling a giant balloon while in costume amuses you, let me know. ;)

    The parade is in the morning, so everyone should be home by noon ? plenty of time to stuff yourself on turkey, and a good excuse to get out helping in the kitchen. You will need to be in some kind of rennie outfit, but extra garb is available if needed.

    If you have any questions, let me know. If there?s interest I?ll post info in this thread, otherwise I?ll just post pictures when it?s all over.

    ~H~

    I was in the parade last year, marching with a company of Union and Confederate infantry and cavalry. We marched for the Missouri Civil War Museum at Jefferson Barracks.

    I'd like to, but I have nothing even remotely close to those centuries, lol.

    I won't be able to be at this parade. I will be out of town.

    So, no seeing me in tights this time around. Sorry Dajuan. ;)

    And to think I would be on TV with that garb...

    Well, it's the STL Thanksgiving day parade, it's always shown on channel 5 or 4 or something.

    Hah! An excuse I can negate. :D I'm borrowing my dad's monk robe as spare garb, you're welcome to use it:

    Any spare getups for medium-sized females?
    It's been a while since I was in a parade. It could be fun.

    I'm sure something can be worked out. Send me an email to the address in your PM box, and I'll put you in contact with the person that has the extra garb. :)

    I would lend someone my cloak, but no one's allowed to touch it. :mad:

    I've touched it, so I'm no one now?

    You're one of the special people. But no way is someone borrowing it.

    Well, if anyone else is interested in helping out, please contact Dajuan. She has the contact info, and my cell phone number.

    Have a happy turkey day everyone!

    That was fun. I'm tired and stinky, but it was good times. We made the TV coverage (not me but others did). Pictures to come.

    How's everyone else's holiday going?

    My uncle got it on tape I think, I can steal it from him. I'm thinking about going for a weekend or two, with school it's hard to put aside tht much time. Worse comes, I'll make a new garb for it and hang for a while. I did meet a lot of people, but there were so many I forget who's who. I did see the fairy from your party though. Said hi to her.
