You deserve a parade!

This year, Hallowe’en falls on Saturday. (You may have noticed.) As a result, I’m going to two celebratory things - and missing three more, one of which is the Samhuinn Fire Festival (which my brother helped start back in the 20th Century) this year taking over the Grassmarket shopping and entertainment plaza from about 7pm. And this is still not that big compared to, say, the Village Halloween Parade in New York.

Ever have a game run into a public event this big? A tickertape parade for a superhero team, the Olympic Games, a Vampire Grand Ball, the Winter Court at Legend Of The Five Rings - something that takes over a big chunk of the regular setting for a day, a night, or several weeks? Something which is supposed to be fun rather than a big political throwdown... although politics is always there. And have you featured one that didn’t include a fight at some point?
