36th Occasional Doo Dah Parade
Saturday April 27 · 11 am
Colorado Blvd between San Gabriel Bl and Altadena Dr, Pasadena
OK, the Doo Dah may not have much green cred, but it is a grassroots, local, and community-driven event. Known as the twisted sister of the Rose Parade, the Doo Dah Parade began in 1978, gaining national attention for its eccentric and, often, irreverent satire.
This year the Grand Marshall will be Alan Zorthian, the son of Jirayr and Dabney Zorthian, and owner of the iconic Zorthian Ranch, hosting an annual folk music festival and also where the Institute for Urban Ecology is creating an urban farm on 22-acres.
