Every summer, the stormtroopers are invited to the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens for the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra's "Laser Adventure," which is part of their Concerts in the Garden series. This Saturday was the first time that Steven was able to troop at it. For working the crowd before the show, each person received 2 free tickets, which meant that I was able to tag along for free.
It all sounded good...
A few pictures of the 501st Legion and Rebel Legion working the crowd:

But the sky was looking quite ominous:
It started drizzling, and they pushed the concert back to 8:15. Then it started coming down harder, and they postponed the concert to 9:00. When they finally got around to starting the show, it was still raining, and it wasn't actually a concert. Naturally, the musicians didn't want to play their instruments in the rain, so we got canned music. And only the second half of the show (just the music from E.T. and Star Wars). It wasn't exactly a fun experience to sit huddled under an umbrella, wrapped in a wet blanket, and listen to a concert that wasn't even a concert.

The only good thing was that the rain made for a more interesting laser show:
Would you believe that it hardly ever rains here in summer? A special thank you to Mike for having the foresight to bring two umbrellas and share one with us!
