Lots of pomp and circumstance surround the annual Rose Parade in Pasadena, one of the first things that greets the new year in LA. Yet, not enough is said about the more underground and free spirited procession that is the annual Pasadena Doo Dah Parade.
Several weeks before the legendary march of elaborate rose floats and various marching bands and horses, a certain Burning Man vibe comes through Old Town Pasadena with arguably more color and exuberance than the Rose Parade (and a whole lot more tongue and cheek fun). Also, you can enter to be in the parade for $10 and you won’t have to deal with college football fans!
The Doo Dah Parade is happening this Sun. starting at 11AM, is free to attend, and is starting at Raymond Ave. x Holly St then turning onto Colorado Blvd and going through to Pasadena Ave. Get more info @pasadenadoodah.
