Star Wars Parade & Outdoor Movie
Star Wars fans unite! We are taking over the streets of Downtown Alpena on August 19th, 2016. We invite all of those who the Force is strong within to show up in costume for our first ever Star Wars themed parade. Summer Movies by the Bay is partnering with Bob’s Bullpen and Thunder-Con to put on this one-of-a-kind event! The festivities will kick off at 8pm at Bob’s Bullpen Comic Shop on 2nd Ave in Downtown Alpena. Bob’s Bullpen will be featuring their Star Wars merchandise along with special displays from Thunder-Con. All those that participate in the parade will be entered in a raffle to win Star Wars merchandise. The parade will commence at 8:40pm. Bring your lightsabers and join us at the Waterfront Park off of Carter St (see map below for details), where we will march down Park Pl, to Harbor Dr, and then to the Bandshell. There, the folks from Thundercon will be offering Light Saber training for kids, and Star Wars face painting. Finally, Summer Movies by the Bay will be showing Star Wars: The Force Awakens at 9:30pm (or once it is dark enough to adequately see the screen). Let the Force awaken in you! Pick your side, and join us August 19th!
