The Central California Garrison and Endor Base braved 35+ mph winds and chilly temperatures to participate in Sacramento's Santa Parade last Saturday. Since it was a Christmas parade, we all wore some type of holiday decorations like santa hats, elf hats and reindeer antlers. Myke and I were asked to be judges for the best decorated CCG member.

We all warmed up once we started walking. Eugene lost a decoration and had his santa hat fly off and I had my hood whipping me in the face due to the wind but we finished the parade unscathed. I was amazed that there was a decent turn out of people watching the parade and of course there were lots of kids excited to see their favorite Star Wars characters.

Mark Chu-Lin got some great pictures which you can see here:

Here are a few pics from my camera.

Tina, thanks for posting Mark's photo link and posting your pics. Here is a link to CCG member S. Brusig's pics:

The gusty wind was my only complaint. I witnessed a 4 year old kid getting knocked over by the wind. That had to be confusing for the poor little guy.

Looking forward to the Modesto parade now...

Thanks for posting those picture Eugene. I like how there are some landmarks in the backgrounds like the Hard Rock, convention center and the capitol.

I didn't see the kid get knocked over, but I'm not surprised! I felt it push me along a few times while we were walking. By the way your Maul costume looks fantastic!
