Placentia Heritage Festival 2008

Just like last year, this year R2 participated in the 2008 Placentia Heritage Festival. Unlike last year, the weather was very nice this time.

The festival was preceded by a parade, in which several Star Wars characters participated, but R2 was not among them, since he doesn't handle parades so well.

R2 joined the characters after the parade, to greet the estimated 20,000 visitors in the park.

Although R2 wasn't part of the parade, the Star Wars characters won First Place in the "novelty" category for the parade.

And it just wouldn't be a public appearance without swarms of kids trying to pull things off. I think R2 returned home with everything he left with. "Be gentle..."

Lots more pics here.
