Every year we get together to create a parade entry for the Madeline Island Fourth of July Parade.

For the 2015 parade, the MIWP is going to re-celebrate (see Buckthorn Buckaroos 2008 photo) our ongoing battle with invasive species in: Star Wars Episode MMXV: the Darth inVaders, Buckthorn and Barberry!

Watch as the massive malevolence of the inVaders tries to obliterate our humble band of heroes. Look for Princess Leia’s side-buns, a heavy dose of capes and boots, and cameo appearances by the Actual Interns fighting the good fight. And much more! An epic saga on this scale (how big is a Death Star anyway?) can only succeed with your help.

Please join us: wear white or black, and we will provide masks, weaponry, and identities. Meet at the Marina one half hour prior to parade time (the parade usually starts at 10:30 AM but check with the Chamber of Commerce) under the MIWP banner. Everyone of any age, species or planetary origin is welcome! 

For questions, call Victoria Erhart in early July.
