Stormtroopers, Sand people, Ewoks and all the favorite characters from Star Wars including Darth Vader and R2-D2 marched into Pasadena for the Rose Bowl Parade.
The parade featured a three part ensemble called the ”Star Wars Spectacular.” The entry commemorated the 30th anniversary of the release of the first Star Wars film in 1977. George Lucas was on hand as well as a large group of Star Wars fans who dressed up as Storm Troopers to march in the parade. Lucas also served as the Grand Marshal of th parade. The Storm Troopers were from the Bloodfin Garrison of the 501st Legion, a Star Wars fan club located in Indiana.
