Tom Holaday shared these great photos from the Queen Tryouts held in East Pasadena. What a fun time we all had… and our are heads still reeling from the variety of Queen Hopefuls who tried out (one of the largest number ever) and Queen Narayana’s mezmerizing dancing performance! Hoisted by two bare-chested young admirers, she captured the judges hearts! Amazing fact: Narayana has danced down every Doo Dah Parade route since 1978!! We have yet to discover the secrets of her youthfulness. Runners up included “Freedom,” an effervescent Harley-Driving Doo Dah lover and the inmitable Count Smokula.
