Camptown Ladies Something Something: Grab your lawn chair and get weird in Pasadena for the 34th Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade. "Daring to go where, well, we went last year, this year’s Pasadena Doo Dah Parade will venture eastward for the second time in its colorful history. While the alternative event has enjoyed much popular success in the Old Pasadena retail and entertainment district, organizers are excited to bring the eclectic parade to the town-like setting of East Pasadena." Stepping off at 11:00am at 2627 E. Colorado Blvd. 91107 in Pasadena, the parade runs Colorado Blvd. between Sierra Madre and San Gabriel Blvds., FREE.
