Pasadena is a great city, well operated, major technical university, rocket scientists, historic homes, a magnificent bridge, oh, and that annual New Years Day parade that everyone watches on television before the football game. But when it comes time to loosen its tie, unbutton its collar, slip into something more comfortable and untwist its knickers there is nothing more fun, irreverent and licentious then the annual Doo Dah Parade.
Saturday, April 28th
Colorado Boulevard in East Pasadena
This year’s 35th Annual Doo Dah Parade promises the likes of Snotty Scotty & the Hankies, League of Steam, Conehead Rocket Sled, Hippie Cream, Easy Acres Chicken Sitters, Balkan Brass Band and Mile High Bed, the Army of Toy Soldiers, Mobile Cupcakes, the BBQ & Hibachi Marching Grill Team, Boo Boo Kitty, and the Billionaires. Toss tortillas, look for hidden celebrities like Barry Gordon and Tim Roth, and be a part of the festivities as the paraders march by. It’s cheap (FREE) and easy like the parade queen herself. Sponsored by the Lightbringer Project, a worthy arts foundation, make it a point to join in the fun. Search the internet for Doo Dah and visit their website for more or less information. Elite Adventure Tours likes to bring it private luxury tours guests on a custom tour of Los Angeles to Pasadena to see what can be seen nowhere else.
