Known as the twisted sister of the conventional Rose Parade, the Pasadena Doo Dah Parade is coming back to its roots in Old Pasadena on Sunday, Nov. 19, 2023.
By News Desk
Are you a homemade conveyance, art car, mutant vehicle, living room furniture, eccentric marching band, rockin’ band, performance artist, cornball, show-stopper, hoofer or crooner, pundit, anachronist, believer or nonbeliever, fantasist, surrealist, Dadaist, space traveler, time traveler, absurdist, weirdo, type A, type B, type C, campy schtick, satirist, or country western hick? Then this Parade is for you!
On Doo Dah day, the street will swell with a cast of local eccentrics, dissenters, pundits, lone wolfs, steam punks, and merrymakers. Popular food trucks will be selling tasty treats at food stands along the parade route.
- Come early, bring a lawn chair.
- Visit the local eateries and shops, and
- Attend the after-parties, all within walking distance.
The Doo Dah Parade does not exist without its volunteers. If you’ve got it, head to their website and sign up.
