Neptune Festival in Va Beach on Sept. 26th


What : Neptune Festival Grand Parade (http://www.neptunefestival.com/events.php?s=17). Our appearance will benefit Make-A-Wish Foundation of Eastern Virginia.

When: Step-off begins at 11:30 AM on Sept. 26th., Saturday. The parade will start at 16th Street running north on Atlantic Avenue, ending at 33rd Street.

Parking: Designated parking will be at the 19th Street/Arctic Ave. surface lot.

Be at the 19th Street/Arctic Avenue surface lot parking lot between 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM to receive your parking pass and change into your costume. Be careful that you don't park and get boxed in by other vehicles.

The assembly area is 11th-12th Street/Atlantic Ave (east-side). Please plan on being there no later than 9:45 AM. Our unit # is TBD.

Check-in will be at 9:30 AM. I will be doing this on behalf of the entire group.

Step-off time is 11:30 AM. Parade begins.

The parade route is Atlantic Ave. and 16th Street proceeding north to 33rd Street.

I will arrange for a truck or van to be parked at the end of the parade route, so we got an easy ride back to the 19th St. surface lot. The Director is negotiating a place where I can park the vehicle at the end of the parade route.

The parade will be held rain or shine!

Rebel Legion members are welcome to attend this event with their approved costume.

# of canon costumers (approved 501st and RL costumes) is not an issue; whatever we can produce.

We are free to carry prop weapons.

Here are pics from last year:

Hotel Information:
http://www.virginiabeach.com/
http://www.expedia.com/
http://www.tripadvisor.com/

I'd pick the best five and start making calls to check for room availability.

You need to call NOW because Neptune Festival, the last big oceanfront weekend, draws tens of thousands of tourists, and hotel rooms fill up rather quick.

501st:
Attending
1) Alan
2) Mark
3) Noel

Maybes
3) Jim S.

Rebel Legion:
Attending
1) Joel Shivannd - RFT or Jedi
2) Ken Dacen Salu
3) Rick Bouri-Plwel RFT or Jedi
Maybe:
1) John Jon-Ari_Kenobi
20 Conley Nikkos Khann


I dont want to step on Danny's toes with this but Alan in the 501st allowed me to crosspost this.
I marched in it last year and it rained before the event but as soon as we stepped off it cleared up.
There were people lined up the entire route and it was a blast.
We had 2 RFTs and it worked out nice with the rest of the 501st

Please post your interest in attending. I will relay the information to the 501st GT boards.
Thanks

Just putting a bump on this one for anyone else who might be in the VA Beach Area...great group of people on the sidelines watching and a great group marching.
We had a blast last year....minus Darth Vader almost passing out....

I'm still marked as a "maybe" for attendance, but it keeps looking like better and better odds that I'll be there! Can't wait!

Thanks for the update.

If you can please let me know ASAP and what costume you will be wearing.

John and Conley....can you update your status. I need to let them know how many parking passes and such and whether you will be wearing Jedi and Han.

Also Ken and Rick...are you still planning on attending?

Thanks in advance

Count me in for it. As of right now I don't see anything getting in my way to be there.

Will have to see on how things go in coordination. At the moment I have no idea if any of my family is coming along to just watch the parade.

I'm definitely coming now. I'll be in Jedi attire. I should just need one parking pass. My family is all coming with me to watch the parade, but we should all come in one vehicle. How do I get a parking pass ahead of time...or do we meet somewhere early to pick it up? Thanks! Can't wait to meet everyone there!
