I just received the request paperwork for the Montgomery Fest Parade. This will be our 4th year in the parade. We are always a huge hit.

The parade is short and sweet, and it practically ends where we begin, so no need to drop off tubs and park and shuttle people. there will be a small fair going on, so afterwards we can enjoy some carnie food, rides, and games.

Here's a link to the parade route:

http://ci.montgomery.il.us/DocumentCenter/View/932

The parking lot we stage in is just south of Nicholson elementary school
https://www.google.com/maps/place/Nicholson+Elementary+School/@41.7328279,-88.339416,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xde8811de3dbad118!8m2!3d41.7328279!4d-88.339416

Parade start time is 1 PM.
I will follow up with more info as it becomes available.

UPDATE the parking lot we stage in will only allow 2 cars per group. the last few years they've let us slip, but we can not count on it, so may want to come drop costumes off, and go find parking. The parking lot will be open to begin staging at 11 AM. I was not given a number this year, just told the volunteers at the lot would tells our position. I plan on being there a little before 12, as they want us in our positions at 1245.

This is a pretty kid friendly parade too, so as you can see from the pictures, we always have a growing contingent of younglings.

I will try to make it again to this one, but it's my birthday on Saturday and my wife and I may go away for the weekend. If we don't, I'm sure I'll be there.

Yep, no problem for kids. This one can get hot/humid but it is short, and we finish pretty much where we start.

Looks like I'm a solid yes for this one as well. Will be in pilot, as I've been stress eating lately and the flightsuit is much more forgiving than the Jedi belt...lol.

Thanks for everyone joining me Smile Alass, the X-Wing wagon will not be making it this year...i found a critter decided to move into my shed and a lot of stuff was damaged...so, the wagon will be stripped down and repurposed.

Too bad, but it's a good thing I was planning on making a Jedi outfit for Ian today.
