On a cold and blustery October day – a day after a freak late season Nor’Easter which brought 12 inches of snow in some areas, the New England Garrison and Alderaan Base ventured out to one of their favorite annual events. Between costumers and wranglers 35 people braved the cold to march in the Woburn Halloween Parade, a 3 mile jaunt through Woburn, MA. Leading our section of the parade were the Jedi, X-Wing pilots, a Tusken and a peck of rockin’ jawas from Alderaan Base. Following them, the parade vehicle held Lord Vader and his favorite bounty hunter, Boba Fett. Bringing up the tail were Vader’s faithful troops: Snowtroopers, Biker Scouts, Stormtroopers, Gunners, and Crewman. Even though the previous night’s storm kept some parade viewers away, Alderaan Base and the New England Garrison represented the Star Wars Community well, and had a fun time. Thank you to the Woburn Host Lions Club.
