The 2018 Doo Dah Queen is Chosen! Long Live Queen Sassy but Classy!

The Pasadena Doo Dah Parade Queen selection was filled with faces both old and new. Boys who wanted to be princesses and girls that shook their money makers fought it out on stage There was even a doctor who twirled her stethoscope like Bruce Lee. Many perennial lifetime contestants tried.out again, such as “Count Smokula” playing his accordion and “Pee Pee Poo Poo” in his colorful garb. Third prize when to a model who made her own dress, who modeled for the Door Can Judges. Second prize went to a boy who cracked his knuckles and then for an encore played Scott Joplin proficiently. He was very straight and amazingly normal-looking He wanted to be Princess, and so he is!

The Grand Prize of Queen went to Queen Sassy but Classy (Jennipha Lauren-Neilson). She was loud crass and brassy. She talked a lot of Poo and they loved it. She strutted around like the chicks from Glow, and may have wrestled you if you didn’t vote for her.

The 2017 Queen Imani Phoenix (Armond Anderson-Bell) was on hand to crown Queen Sassy but Classy. This year’s 45th Occasional Doo Dah Parade, a local spoof of the Rose Parade, will take place in Pasadena on Sunday, November 18, 2018.
