This is the Seventh Annual Halloween Town Celebration on Hawk Drive in Vacaville. For this one evening each year all the homeowners of Hawk Drive and Hawk Court close the streets to all vehicle traffic and transform their homes into a Nightmare Before Christmas. Past years have featured over 2200 kids ages 3 to 12 years old , and this year we expect an even larger crowd. All homes are decorated in a non-gore type atmosphere and provide special effects for trick-or-treaters. Vacaville Police and Explorers secure the area to vehicle traffic and the kids are able to experience a safe and scary enviroment. Numerous charaters in costume's visit throughout the night, and this years event will feature many of your favorite Star Wars characters.

The event starts at sundown, approximatelty 6:00 pm and runs until 8:30 pm. Parking is at a premium outside the main event area, so you should plan on arriving no later than 5:30pm if possible. We will supply a secure changing and rest location along with plenty of candy, drinks, and pizza.

EDIT:

The event organizer is Ron Drinkard and he can be reached at hmpotc33@yahoo.com.

That was very nice of Ron to extend a formal invitation to the Rebel Legion!

I have it on my list of things I'd like to do for Halloween, although prior to Ron's invite I had a tentative invite to a dinner party at a friends house. Nothing formal or firm there yet though...

Matt - Ron might not know that our message boards are not private at this time (I put in a request in the web site ideas thread - so I tried!). Maybe posting Ron's phone number isn't a good idea since anyone can view this bboard. Maybe say something like - contact Matt Tolosa for for Ron's phone number if you are signing up for this event?

I can do either Jedi or RFT.

Hmmmm, this could be pretty fun. I think I've still got Ron's #, I'll have to check. Vacaville's only 10 miles away for me. I could pack my gear, take it to work and go from there...

Matt, do you and Dale still plan to attend this? I would have, but was invited to a local dinner party some of our newer Endor Base members are having. I missed their big party on Saturday, so I can't miss the mini-party Wink

I meant that the costumes we were planning on wearing Halloween were not exactly "kid-friendly". Wink

Uh, well you could always keep those costumes for Dragon*Con (*hint hint* - you guys need to go one year!) and wear your kid friendly rebel gear in Vacaville! Unless you are intent on wearing your suits and gift boxes on Halloween Wink

I can't wait to see the photos! Unfortunately, there is only one of me and I couldn't be in two places at once Sad Same problem happened to me on Saturday night.

Well, I'd say you got your money's worth out of your costumes then! Congrats!

It was an awesome time! I debut' my 41st Elite Clonetrooper - Coruscant version (grey/white) and had one awesome time!

It seemed like at least every other house had at least one fog machine, and with the strobe lights, colored lights, it was very surrealistic.

Master Jedi Anakin and I were just throughly enjoying ourselves, whether it was posing for pics, or just walking through and out of the fog.

I think both of us didn't want the night to end!

I was very happy with how my armor fit, it's range of motion was outstanding! After a few years of hoping, working for, being disappointed in various Clone armor kits, this was incredible.

I'd like to thank Ron and Ann for co-ordinating this wonderful event and for having us there. They're hospitality was overwhelming!

The best Halloween I've had in years! As far as I'm concerned, I know where I'll be every Halloween from now on!!





I really like this pic!
