Welcome Fellow Chubes! Welcome to the Rise of the Redshirts 2018 parade escort and volunteer team for Chewbacchus 2018 “Get on Board the Mothership” Parade on Saturday February 3, 2018.

Redshirts are hard-working parade escorts and are ESSENTIAL to the success of Chewbacchus. The mission of the Redshirts is to guard the perimeter of the krewe and assist with route coordination while we march through the frenzied crowds. A special detail is also assigned to protect the celebrity royalty. In addition, if something breaks down, our Redshirts are there to help push, pull, pedal and/or maneuver the injured human/alien or parade contraption to safety.

This year, all Redshirts will be supplied with:

  • Redshirt t-shirt
  • Droid collar (aka wristband) which grants you free access to the Chewbacchanal (must fulfill your duties as a Redshirt the day of the parade)
  • Beer and water
  • Digital copy of up-to-date map of the parade route, which will include Observer placement
  • Digital copy of sub-krewe placement
  • Optional: for a fee of half the value of $42, you can have your Redshirt personalized with your name and sub-krewe logo (must order 30-days in advance of the event)
  • Optional: for working an 8-hr volunteer shift on the day of the parade, you will be provided with a light lunch

Redshirts get to march in the parade and attend the Chewbacchanal for FREE; there is always a free keg stashed for us somewhere at the party!

You must remain reasonably sober during the parade, but can relax and party down at the Chewbacchanal (we have actual “real” paid security at the party).

We are looking for a few foolishly brave beings. If you think you’ve got what it takes, then please sign up to be a part of the security team!

The Redshirt Rebellion also has a Redshirt Rebellion Facebook Group to aid in recruitment and coordination (must signup for 2018 recruitment to gain access to the Facebook page).
