No Camptown Races but there is Doo Dah, Doo Dah
If this event is not on your bucket list, well, it should be. Today you have a chance to cross it off. This parade (a term used loosely to describe what happens) has been amusing and delighting audiences since 1978 and every year is either the last or the best Doo Dah parade ever. Beginning at 11 a.m. (possibly, perhaps, maybe) the 2013 Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade will move in fits and starts along its Colorado Boulevard route. According to the parade’s website you will get to see Flying Baby Hammer, A Moveable Feast (based on a Hemingway novel), Ace Ketchum-Professional Vampire Fisherman, The Great Firewall of China, The LOH Down on Science (featuring NPR personality Sandra Tsing Loh), Suffer Jet-Set Planet for David Bowie, Camp Bimbo, Worlds Tallest Girl Scout, Jiffy Pop! Happy Howard’s Harlequin, The Bearded Ladies, Long Beach Ukelele Club, Johnny Skunkmobile, Fashion on the Fly, Drunk in the Garage Band, Zombie Training Camp, Arrow Sign Spinners, and The Army of Toy Soldiers.
But that’s not all!
If you act now you will also receive a fleet of motorized Kinetic Pastry Science Mobile Muffins, Captain MacHogwash’s Amazing Chundra, the world’s final appearance of robotic spitting cat named Boo-Boo Kitty, Senior Graucho, Mile High Bed, Yippie Hippie Sixties, Million Marijuana March, The Billionaires, Sloppy Swishers, Whistling Diva Champion, Amnesty International, Blues Brothers Tribute, L.A. Derby Dolls, Pizza Oven Art Car, Vegetables of Laguna Beach, classic, scary clowns, BBQ & Hibachi Marching Grill Team, Bus Target, Howdy Krishna, Horses on Astroturf, and the immortal Doo Dah house band Snotty Scotty & the Hankies, and much more!
It’s a free gift that keeps on giving. Our private Los Angeles tour guides will have numerous requests to either find parking for our visitors or just drive in the parade (Celebrity Homes Stealth Vans). It’s too much fun for words so see it for yourself — and believe!
