Edmond Libertyfest Parade - July 4

Post by crochetleia » Wed Jun 19, 2019 11:21 am

When: Thursday July 4th 8:15am
Where: Eastern Parking lot of UCO (corner of Bauman and Hurd)
Parade Starts at 8:45am
Weapons and Sabers okay, just don't point them at anyone.

The club will have a patriotically themed float with a small space for riders, but most people will need to walk.

Meet after for early lunch at Torchy's Tacos at Bryant and 2nd

Please post if you are participating and what you will be wearing. Feel free to add some patriotic flair!

I’ll be there in the usual garb. I might have to ride this time. My knees are trash.

Okay, I can post again! (I've been trying to log in for two months...with no luck...but today is my lucky day. Dang, I wasted that...)

Thank you, Cara, for posting this initial event. Even though I'm not the Parade Fuhrer anymore, I've been asked to spearhead this event, probably because I live in Edmond.

Anyway, like Cara said, we'll have a great trailer with a sweet May the Fourth Be With You/JediOKC banner on both sides, some magnets for Fran's red truck that will be pulling the trailer, music, and of course, patriotic swag. I'll bring a cooler with water for those that planning on walking (or riding).

If you are not planning on wearing a costume, please, for the love of JarJar, wear a JediOKC shirt. Let's spread the word about this great club. There will be nearly 50,000 people on the sidelines, so we have a great chance to show our club spirit and maybe attract some new events and maybe, just maybe, some new members!

I will be there riding my scooter I have not decided depends on how hot it is if I will wear my Kylo Ren or not if it is too hot I may just wear my First order storm trooper helm and a T-shirt.

Trying to make it with the whole fam. I'll be in a casual red, white, and blue version of Rey.

I’ll be there in the drivers seat & Latonya will be dressed as a Twi’lek.

I can bring a Twilek again, if you want red white and blue I can throw something together pretty easy.

My only problem is that I woke up with Sciatic pain today so I am not sure I will be able to walk in the parade. If I go I may have to be on the float. I hate that, because I enjoy being on the ground!
