Halloween parade update and information
Here's the plan so far. Parade Starts moving around 7pm, Line up starts at Spring Street. Enter parade at Canal Street 6th ave, or East of 6th ave.
Christian Bontigao our XO of ECG has booked a room in the hotel Penn, located on
New York's Hotel Pennsylvania
401 Seventh Avenue (at 33rd St.)
New York, N.Y., 10001-3412
This is for those who needs to change or leave their belonging for the night or a place to crash afterwards. Please contact Christian at Cbont116@yahoo.com for more info.
For those of you who would like to have something to eat before the parade begins. We are all meeting at DoJo's Restaurant at 4 - 4:30pm.
Dojo's located at 14 W 4th St, New York, NY (212) 505-8934
here's a map:
If you can't make it to eat with us, then please meet us by 5:30 - 6pm in front of Dojo's and from there we will start walking to the entry point of the parade.
PLEASE NOTE: We can only enter through Canal Street and 6th AVe and eastside of spring street and 6th ave not on the west side of the street. To avoid some confusion, the best thing to do is enter from Canal St and 6th Ave. So if you are late from meeting with us, then please make a note of this.
We will be part of the float in conjunction with the kostume network and sponsorship with Redbull. The float is in silver and blue and most likely with red bull stuff on it. And look out for us troopers, we will take point in securing the area and helping the flow of the float. Hope to get the number of the float soon; I'll let you all know. But it's easy to find once you're in the area. Look for loud music and troops.
Parade event: During the parade, they will be doing some choreograph lightsaber duels, sponsored by Master replicas and they just need the troops to surround them while the do battle. Here's some info on what this is all about should be fun!
After Parade/ partying: After the parade we all usually converge at our usual spot the Cutting Room to rest our toes refresh ourselves, and from there we will head out to some Clubs to shake our armors. Club info T.B.D.
The Cutting Room is located at :19 West 24th St http://www.thecuttingroomnyc.com/
Closest bar: this is the area where the parade ends, so it's a block away from the end of the parade.
Please share this info with all interested parties. If I missed something I haven't covered or any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.
