OK so Pasadena isn't all that far, but was it ever fun!
2007 was the 30th anniversary of Star Wars, and George Lucas decided it would be cool to have 200 Stormtroopers marching down Colorado Blvd to celebrate. It was the biggest 501st gathering ever, and Lucasfilm paid for every bit of it! We met so many new friends from around the globe that we are still trying to visit them all. Kim coordinated all of the volunteers to decorate the Star Wars floats and even got a personalized photo from George Lucas as a thank you gift.
anyway - here are some pictures from the 5 day event.
