‘Star Wars’ 501st Legion Coming To Outer Banks Halloween Parade!

Posted By on October 2, 2015

OBX Entertainment has intercepted an imperial transmission confirming that The Empire will have a presence at the 2nd annual OUTER BANKS HALLOWEEN PARADE OF COSTUMES, on Sunday, October 25 at Kelly’s in Nags Head, as the Star Wars 501st Legion Carolina Garrison will be patrolling the event, on the hunt for Jedi, rebels, and anyone that is not wearing a Halloween costume!

The 501st Legion (Vader’s First) is recognized as the world’s definitive imperial costuming organization, as members are only approved based on the quality and authenticity of their homemade costumes inspired by the troopers and various characters from the Star Wars movies.

Members of the 501st Legion will be patrolling the Halloween Parade of Costumes, available for photo ops with fans, starting at 2pm on Sunday, Oct. 25, when parade registration opens and the pre-parade party begins.
