I'm always trying to put together trooping opportunities here in Roanoke, and I was checking interest on a Holiday Parade in Roanoke Dec. 11th @6pm. I contacted the parade organizers about possibly being in the parade and I got a form letter response. I'll copy it here.

Description of Business Represented:

This appears to be a themed parade, and the theme for this year is "Holiday Traditions through the ages". Could be fun to play with the idea that we are giant Action Figures. Full disclosure, I've never seen this parade in person, so I'm not 100% sure what to expect.

It appears this is the weekend after the Richmond Ukrops parade, Dec. 11th. I'd love to have some more people come to this area to have some fun, and show how great the Rebel Legion and 501st are.
