The eccentric Doo Dah Parade takes over East Pasadena on April 27th

The colorful and eccentric Doo Dah Parade comes back to Pasadena on Saturday, April 27th. Referred to as the "twisted sister of the traditional Rose Parade," Doo Dah features wacky floats that often satire those found at average parades. Some floats that will take part in the parade this year include A Moveable Feast inspired by a Hemingway novel, The World's Tallest Girl Scout, The Long Beach Ukulele Club, and The Great Firewall of China. Doo Dah was named "America's Best Parade" by Readers Digest and is not to be missed.

The Doo Dah Parade will take place on Saturday, April 27th at 11am. It will run through East Pasadena on Colorado Boulevard between Altadena and San Gabriel Boulevard. Street parking is available, and the parade is free to attend. More information can be found on the Pasadena Doo Dah Parade website.
