The Parade that is a party…the random nearly-annual Doo Dah Parade takes place in East Pasadena on Saturday April 30. None of the usual stuffiness of the Rose Parade, this is a totally irreverent event that I just adore. Its a lot silliness, a lot of politically incorrect and just plain fun to watch it stroll on by.
The party is set to start 11 am-ish. It will start at the corner of Vinedo and Colorado Blvds (MAP HERE). The parade will march down one side of Colorado Blvd westerly to Altadena then turn around and go east on the other side to San Gabriel Blvd. At San Gabriel the parade again turns around to go west back to Vinedo Ave.
There are multiple parties going on after the parade. The big official party will be at the American Legion Hall at 179 N Vinedo St (2 Blocks north of the parade route). All the info you could want on the parade and after party HERE on the official web site.
Do arrive early as the spectator space fills fast. Sorry, but there is limited public transpo into the parade site and traffic does get nasty around there.
