The Troma Street Team has also unveiled plans for a Cretin-themed parade of sub-humanoid proportions at 2:00pm on Saturday, October 13th, featuring classic Troma characters and members of the cast and crew of Return to Nuke ‘Em High! The parade will start at the intersection of 34th St. and 11th Avenue and travel to the 35th street entrance where members of the cast will recreate a scene from the film: a classic Troma meltdown!
