The boisterous, twisted sister to Pasadena's prim and proper Rose Parade is expected to draw an estimated 45,000 fun-lovers from all over Southern California and parts unknown. Since 1978, Doo Dah has received national attention and has been named "Best Parade in America" by Readers' Digest, and is included in the book 50 Places To See Before You Die.
WHERE: The OLD PASADENA historic retail and entertainment district.
Convenient parking is located in structures adjacent to the parade route. Metro Gold Line stops nearest to the Parade are Del Mar and Memorial Park stations. Lawn chairs are encouraged!
WHO: Over 1,500 revelers will be led by 2009 Grand Marshal Charles Phoenix, loved by fans for his live, hilarious Retro Slide Show performances, fun-filled School Bus Field Trip Tours, crazy kitchen experiments and colorful coffee table books. Charles will be perched atop a bright red fire marshal's station wagon towing a classic trailer followed by a troupe of colorfully coutured roller skaters.
