(edited from GGG report):

On Saturday, December 1st, 2012, at approx. 11 am, members of the Golden Gate Garrison and Rebel Legion started to arrive at the Oakland Marriott Hotel.

At 11:30 am, we started to don into our costumes in the spacious changing area in the hotel. At 12 noon, we attended the VIP room at the Jewett Ballroom and entertained photo requests. We even had the opportunity to have our photo taken with Santa Claus.

At 1 pm, a few of us decided to cool off by walking outside and pay a visit to other parade units. Then around 1:45 pm, everyone assembled at our staging area where we took our group photos.

Around 2:30 pm, our unit was folded into the parade. This year, we had the assistance of an elf who lead our parade unit holding a 501st Legion sign. The thirteen of us walked the parade route and arrived at the end of the parade at approx. 3 pm. Half the team decided to walk back to the Marriott Hotel, while the other half waited for the shuttle bus, which arrived at around 3:20 pm and brought us back to the Marriott Hotel around 3:30 pm.

We were extremely fortunate that the Oakland Holiday Parade occurred in between storms. As it turned out, we managed to complete the entire parade route without getting wet! Razz
