ENTRY INFORMATION                                      

Sunday, November 18th, 2018

Step-off @ 11:00am, East Pasadena

Welcome to Doo Dah! Yes, it’s time to have a parade! We’re so happy enjoy your participation at the 41st Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade!!

YOUR ARRIVAL:

The staging area for the parade is on Nina Street between Altadena Drive and Vinedo (just one block north of Colorado Boulevard and a block below Walnut). Go to MapQuest or Google and enter 73 N. Vinedo St., Pasadena, CA 91107 (check-in is here).

Please arrive and check-in NO LATER THAN 10:00am. Each group’s main contact should check-in for the group. Additional unpaid marchers, or brand new entries who appear that morning, will be collected at check-in. The main entry contact person (on the form) will be given parade stickers for every participant in their group. All of your people should wear them so they’re visible.

Vehicles not in the parade will need to drop off people, props, floats, etc., and find parking outside of the staging area. HAPPY NOTE: There is GREAT free, all-day parking on Walnut Street, located just one block north of the staging area. You guessed it-the earlier you come, the easier it is to park!

Come early, mingle, have fun, take pictures, practice your routines, pose for a drawing or photo, there will be lots of media on hand.

Say you’re coming and share the facebook event page with your network, and tag us on your posts! @pasadenadoodah #pasadenadoodah fb: Pasadenadoodah

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 yummy food trucks set up just below Colorado on the parade route. 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!!
