The NEG Returns to Woburn!
On Sunday, October 31st, the New England Garrison returned once again to the annual Woburn Halloween parade in Woburn Massachusettes, marching on the actual holiday for the first time. Over the past several years, the NEG has been a regular fixture of the parade, with a major prop and a wide array of marchers to green parade viewers.
This year marked one of the most successful marches that the Garrison has participated in. Armed with a scene from Jabba’s palace from Return of the Jedi, The 501st fielded characters from almost every era of the Star Wars saga, starting off with Darth Maul and running through Clone Troopers, Jedi, Chewbacca, Stormtroopers, Snow Troopers, and Darth Vader himself, amongst others. Almost 60 members of the NEG turned out to march for a reported crowd of 80,000 people.
