Doo Dah Parade ready to shake up Colorado Blvd. The Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade will celebrate 37 years of irreverent playfulness on the streets of Pasadena. The 2014 Parade takes place on Saturday, Novemberth, stepping off at 11am in East Pasadena along Colorado Boulevard. On Doo Dah day, the street will swell with a memorable cast of local eccentrics, dissenters, pundits, lone wolfs, steam punks, and merrymakers who comprise the Moveable Feast, the Mile-High Bed, a parody of not-so-traditional airline behavior, the Candy Girls, Flying Babies Trapeze, The Army of Toy Soldiers, beer boosting rockers Drunk in the Garage, Kinetic Pastry Science Mobile Muffins, The Billionaires, Vegetables of Laguna Beach, Cheesus Chrust Pizza Company, the indescribable Diatomaceous Love Monkeys, OC Norml’s Mardi Grass, Partying Parrotheads, the visually spectacular Songbird Robot, and legendary Doo Dah house band Snotty Scotty & the Hankies… AMONG OTHERS!! Last year, dozens of inventive, if zany, art cars and floats accompanied a legion of frolickers past the mom-n-pop shops along East Pasadena’s shady tree-lined streets. Additional old and new entries coming back this year include Easy Acres Chicken Sitters, combined bands of the 35th Dragoon Guards, Boo-Boo Kitty, KidSwap, Auto Focus-Famous Director, King Louie, A Moveable Feast, Human Pool Balls, Howdy Krishna, Radioactive Man, Charlie and Pearl the Unicorns, Blues Brothers Tribute, Klingon Assault Group, and much, much more!. Yes, another Doo Dah is here to help you forget your humdrum existence! Known as the twisted sister of the conventional Rose Parade, the Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade began as a grassroots event in 1978 to gain national attention for its eccentric and, often, irreverent satire.
