Then, mark your calendar for the 36TH OCCASIONAL PASADENA DOO DAH PARADE, to be held Saturday, April 27th, on Colorado Boulevard between Altadena Drive and San Gabriel Boulevard in east Pasadena.
Stepping off at 11:00AM and daring to go where no parade has gone before, this year's parade will bring its own brand of raucous eccentricity to Pasadena's east side. The cost is always free.
Can you tell I copied this from a press release? I'm copying just a little more, because the currently-reigning queen and soon-to-be-outgoing queen, Patrizzi Intergarlactica, has this advice for you:
1. Channel the Tim Burton, Monty Python, Karl and Groucho Marx spirit world.
2. Open your heart.
3. Say yes.
4. Leave your favorite sunglasses in a safe place when cavorting.
5. Know that your inner azimuth will become dented and bewobble from here on out.
*could be a bargain, depending on the size of your entourage.
