  2. Well, we got 3 troopers, that is fantastic! Hopefully we can get a few more! I think we have a guest coming from Georgia! I’ll start pushing this on Port Cities Patrol a bit harder. I really would like to see us have a stronger showing every year! Tom

    Hi All!

    I hope everyone is well and geared up for the 2023 Holiday Parade. Attached is the entry packet along with the parade guidelines/map.

    The staging area will be open at 2:30 pm. It is not required that you arrive at 2:30 pm but all units must arrive for lineup no later than 5:30 pm. Parade will start at 6:00 pm.

    Staging Area: Cape Fear Community College Student Lot #2 – 100 Block of Brunswick St between Front St and 2nd St (directly behind the CFCC Wilson Center for Performing Arts) accessible via N. Front St or N 3rd St.

    Staff will check you in at the back entrance of Cape Fear Community College Student Lot #2 off Brunswick St. Units must arrive via N 3rd St and Brunswick St only.

    There will not be a set lineup – all entries will be placed in parade order based upon arrival to the staging area.

    Automobile, motorcycle and walking groups must arrive together at once as all must be present prior to placing in parade lineup.

    Any groups, units wishing to be grouped together or in line/beside one another must arrive together to ensure placement together.

    SO, I ‘d say that we need to be suited up as a group and ready to check in by 5PM. Every marching character “must be illuminated in some way”, lightsabers and blasters, I guess would count if the blasters are functional. If not I’m guessing they want some battery powered Christmas lights around your neck……

  6. There is a show going on at the Wilson Center. I’m still going to try and park on the 3rd floor of the parking deck. OTW now to suit up, so I can register for the parade. Make sure we have our spot. There is a slight chance of rain, but looks better than last year! We will see you all there!!!!! :stormtrooper:

  7. I’m in the parking lot beside the deck. I’m pretty close to it.
