Weekend Adventures: Doo Dah Parade, Lawndale Youth Parade, Festival of Books


Want to go to a parade where you can pelt participants and side-liners alike with corn tortillas and marshmallows, carry a cross next to the Cannabis Peace Corps, preach to transvestites, people in little motorized cupcakes and Elvis on a Vespa? If this is your cup of tea, then you’ll enjoy the counter-cultural, anti-Rose Parade, Doo Dah Parade in Pasadena. (Read what happened last year by clicking here.) Watch the action with this two minute video:

Meet at Hope Chapel at 8am to carpool.

Want a safer alternative? Then the Lawndale Youth Parade is for you….

It’s just what the title says it is, a youth parade. Bless them with the Gospel because chances are their parents haven’t told them about Judgment Day, Hell and the Savior. Meet also at Hope Chapel at 8am to carpool.

If you want to do something on your own time with your own team, go to the L. A. Times Festival of Books at USC all weekend from 10am to 5pm. Over 150,000 people are expected to attend.


  1. Shame I’m not in Pasadena – I’d go to the Doo Dah Parade. Looks like a good time is had by… well, everybody but you. (You know you’re being kind of a buzzkill there, right, Steve?)
