CHECK-IN:

Check-In will be open at 8:00am for the early birds. The location is at Nina and Vinedo Streets (the front of the entry staging area). It will be easy to find.

PARADE TIPS:

The Doo Dah Parade has no marching order, so find a place that makes you comfortable. But remember, it’s first-come-first-serve. If you are concerned about your spot, come early. Think about what is fun in front and behind you.

If you’re a band you’ll probably want to find a place that’s not in front of or behind another musical group.Entries have been really good at figuring this out! We will also have volunteers helping in this area.

Keep in mind, we want to avoid leaving trash behind. Old crowd traditions are hard to break, but those coming to watch the parade will see signage about this too.

EVEN MORE PARADE TIPS:

Make sure to wear comfortable shoes unless your costume begs for something else! Bring water and snacks for before the parade. Save some space for TWOHEYS food truck set up by Poo Bah Records on Colorado Blvd. Denny’s Restaurant is always serving on the corner of Vinedo St. and Colorado Blvd. for you Grand Slammers.

SOUVENIRS AVAILABLE:

Incredibly cool new T-shirts can be purchased at the event in the staging area, as well as along the parade route. When you buy a t-shirt, you are supporting the whole Doo Dah Parade operation, which is nonprofit, with a percentage directly benefiting public school youth in the arts and artists in our community! Your support will bring fabulous karma your way!!
