…Well, until tomorrow. The Rose Parade starts at 8 a.m. PST/11 a.m. EST, and will be broadcast nationally on ABC, NBC, HGTV, the Travel Channel (?) and Discovery HD. (HDTV, at least, starts their coverage an hour early, and may offer some peeks at the Spectacular.) A TFN reader has guesstimated that the Star Wars contingent will appear 50 minutes to an hour into the broadcast. George, as Grand Marshall, will be about 20 floats after that.
George Lucas made a surprise appearance last night, thanking the 501st and Grambling ‘troops.’ The 501st has video.
There are also plenty of costumed fans in the press this week:
Behind the scenes as LFL preps for Rose Bowl parade. There are disembodied Ewok heads and everything!
No one is surprised that there are Rose Bowl Parade pins.
