It's Mardi Gras time and Peter Mayhew was onhand at the Tucks Parade yesterday (2-2-08). Together with the 501st they waved and greeted fans as they moved through the crowded streets. See below for some pics and click on them for a larger view.
Big thanks to our friend Nancy L. for the news and the pics!
UPDATE: Nancy, who provided us with the pictures from above, sent in the following update:
"At the parade tonight (Bacchus), there was another Star Wars themed float. No actors from the films or costumed characters, but instead there was a huge Luke and the droids and a Tie Fighter as the main decoration on a float dedicated to the films of the '70's. Vader was on a mural on the side panel. Since it was period films and not just SW, the masked riders were dressed as John Travolta, including the disco hair and that white suit."
Thanks again Nancy! Click on the pics for a larger view.
