Occasionally, the Doo Dah Parade occurs in Pasadena to thrill the throngs of iconoclasts and enthusiasts of camp! This year was no different as the parade officially brought festive mayhem on Colorado Boulevard, starting around 11am. A barrage of corn tortillas were thrown by the performers and floats as they passed by, with the occasional reciprocation that lent itself to good natured fights. The Doo Dah Parade anthem “More Beer” rings out across Colorado Blvd. by the famous or infamous Drunk In The Garage rocking the faithful! When the parade finishes, the party isn’t over as most head to one of two places. The Colorado Bar plays host to many with suds and an encore performance of Drunk In The Garage while many revelers join the official party of the Doo Dah Parade with Snotty Scotty and the Hankies at the American Legion Hall for cheap stiff drinks and dancing. Pranks and shenanigans are the result as people party into the Sunday evening, and here are the photos to prove it!
