Make way for the Doo Dah Parade.

Here comes the Pasadena Doo Dah Parade!

This Saturday the Doo Dah parade rolls back into town. Not your garden variety parade, but rather something whimsical and unconventional. With parade entries such as the BBQ & Hibachi Marching Grill Team, the Church of the Ornamental Lawn Decorations, Human-Powered Cupcakes, it’s no wonder you will see hundreds of people laughing hysterically along the parade route; For there is something truly fun for everyone in the parade.

This long time Pasadena tradition was conceived in a bar in Pasadena called Cromo’s (which is no longer in Pasadena) back in 1978. Some of more noteworthy entries from back in the day were Snotty Scotty and the Hankies, the Lawn Mower Drill Team, the Briefcase Drill Team and General Hershey Bar.
