Bartlett 4th of July Parade

July 6th 2003 - Bartlett, IL

Well with very short notice, we managed to pull together 7 Troopers, A Dummy Vader, and a
rebel pilot, And decorate 2 vehicles for this parade.
In costume was......
TK118 (Tom), TK669 (Kevin), TK737 (Duffy), TK604 (Luis), TK826 (Damian),
TB101 (Aimee), Rob, and Rebel Pilot (Andrew).
Helping out was Debbie (Video), Dave (Photos) and Jen (Driver)

Kevin was blaring Star Wars music from his car, hung the 501st banner, and made a Dummy Vader
to sit in the passenger seat. He got a ton of looks.
Parade was to be 3/4 of a mile, but we all agree it was MUCH longer. It was very hot as well
but a great time was had by all.

Kids enjoyed seeing us, We got a lot of cheers and applause. We tossed out candy and made the
residents LOVE us!

Thanks to the guy who gave some of the troopers a ride back to the starting point. No one thought about this at the beginning!

Parade was taped for local cable. We will have a copy of it soon I hope.

THANK YOU very much to the troopers who came out with such short notice to make this event a
big success! Lets do this again next year!
