This is so cool. I wish I had seen it, but we were on our way home from the cabin:
One of the highlights was the three-piece “Star Wars Spectacular,” an entry that celebrates the 1977 release of “Star Wars,” the first film in the sci-fi saga. About 200 stormtroopers led by Darth Vader marched down Colorado Boulevard as Ewoks swung from trees and waterfalls cascaded down the side of the garden planet Naboo.
The parade’s Grand Marshal was “Star Wars” creator George Lucas who rode in a 1911 Pope-Hartford, Model Y.
“We’ve lived here all our lives and never been to the parade, but this year we just gotta see Mr. Lucas,” said 51-year-old Robin Romero of Hacienda Heights, who frequents “Star Wars” conventions across the country. “This is the 10th time I’ll see him (Lucas) in person. It’s going to be so cool to see the stormtroopers march.”
I was 10 years old when Star Wars came out and I was dazzled. I’ve been a Star Wars fan ever since.
