The streets of Old Town Pasadena are about to get Doo Dah-ed! | Photo: Benjamin Page/LAist Featured Photos pool on Flickr

Awwww, yeah! It's the 32nd Occasional Doo Dah Parade, the anti-Rose Parade, taking the streets of Pasadena at 11:30 this morning. Bring your own lawn chairs to Old Town Pasadena (Raymond and Colorado) to take a gander at wha thas been named "Best Parade in America" by Readers' Digest. Over 1,500 revelers will be led by 2009 Grand Marshal Charles Phoenix (LAist Interview), who will be perched atop a bright red fire marshal's station wagon towing a classic trailer followed by a troupe of colorfully coutured roller skaters. The list of oddball participants is too huge to list--it's one of those "you've just gotta see this" at least once in your life!

...Because they're kindergarteners! "There's No People Like Snow People" is an art show featuring some very raw talent. The kids of Room 5, Ms. Morris' class, at Ivanhoe Elementary School, have their creativeness on display at Monkeyhouse Toys & Art Gallery this weekend. Twenty-one very individual kids will be showing off their original artwork with a wintry theme.
