On December 8, 2012, members of the Corellian Base, Midsouth Garrison, Blue Ridge Base, Georgia Garrison, Carolina Garrison, Tranquility Base, Galactic Academy, Mandolorian Mercs, and R2 Builders came together to help celebrate all things Star Wars to the people in the Chattanooga area. Each person brought their own uniqueness to the parade and we all had a great time. We started around 3:00 PM arriving at our base of operations at the Chattanooga Choo Choo for Todd Patton, who secured us a changing area inside the Centennial Theater. At 5:00 PM we head out to the shuttle area to get in our shuttles to get at the staging grounds; however, before we even could get into the shuttles, we were asked by many people for photos. By 5:15 PM we arrived at the float, which was on the corner of 750 Market Street. For while we were waiting around more people asked us to pose with them . We were huge hits with the River City Corvette Club and the Chattanooga Roller Derby. For we were in between them in a line up in the parade. The parade started at 6:00 PM to 7:00bPM, and with hundreds of people screaming Star Wars, I feel we were a huge hit. After the parade, we all headed back to the shuttle area and made our way back to the Choo Choo. After everyone changed we had a discussion on where we were going to eat. After a thirty minute discussion we decided upon Taco Mamacita's.

Special thanks to Steve Dockery and Dave Hester on making a great parade float.

This was such a fun troop. I always have a grea time doing this parade. Although I will admit, when I woke the next morning I felt like I had Chewbacca a sissy. But, it was well worth the minor aches and pains to see the smiles on everyone's faces and to hear everyone cheering for us. Man what a rush.
