Doo Dah Parade dubs playwright/director, musician, Juli Crockett as its 2015 Grand Marshal!
The Pasadena Doo Dah Parade has selected renaissance woman, Juli Crockett, to lead this year’s 38th Occasional Parade. Consider the fact she’s a singer, songwriter, playwright, theater director, undefeated professional boxer and amateur champion, and leader of an alt-country/Americana genre-defying band and you’ll get the picture. Don’t forget to add Doctor of Philosophy in Media and Communications to her resume. Doo Dah organizers say “Juli is a fierce and brilliant artist who embodies the spirit of our event!”
