I'd like to extend congratulations, and offer my patio space to any and all TC'ers who are attending this years parade. If people are interested into turning the invitation into an all out tiki gathering, let me know.

I've removed the post parade details, as they've come and gone. Page six is where the photos start.

Thank you for posting this Tiki Gardener!!!

Wow! it was an exhilarating night... I sang pineapple princess for the win... and a win it was for the tiki crowd!

Did you know that there is a marching crew that has appeared in the parade for many years called the "Parrot Heads?" They walk en masse wearing Hawaiian shirts carrying margaritas while a guy plays "wasted away" on the guitar.

Is it time for the Centralites to show them how it's really done??? I know we could out-doo dah them! It would be cool to have a tiki crew in the parade... (it's a very short parade) IDEAS???

speaking of which... i am not sure if i have an official float or not? it may just be a bicycle rick shaw. so if anyone can think of an appropriate tiki transportation device - that is actually available for the parade - please let me know.

i love your generous offer for a party. how close are you to old town? I am not sure about an 'immediate' after parade party for me... as I may have queenly duties to attend to? but a little later perhaps...

i bet c.b. would bring his bongos and if the 'king' is recovered from his birthday - maybe he'd come along, too?

If the parade's not on Thanksgiving weekend I could probably march in my giant Mai Tai costume that I made for Halloween this year.

It wouldn't be too difficult for people to dress up as various cocktails. All you need is fabric, hula hoops, duct tape and a staple gun; no sewing machine is necessary.

Later would be fine, especially if someone brings a slide projector, as I've always wanted to do a slide show of the Tiki Gardens Slides I've managed to collect on the big sound barrier wall at the back of my patio.

I'm right on the very short route. I've watched the parade from my roof.

first of all cynner - that costume is simply fabulous!!! and 2nd of all - the parade is actually the sunday before the thanksgiving weekend. Sunday, Nov. 21. at the easy-on-hangovers hour of 11:30 AM.

I believe the cost per person to march in the parade is $10 - to help cover the organiers permits, insurance and security, etc...

is there anyone who wants to be the contact person ringleader? (they have a form on the website) Then i can request that the tiki central troup marches next to the queen's court! i'll be bringing a bunch of those oriental trading leis along to throw at the crowd like mardi gras beads to spread the aloha.

OMG congrats to Mizz Capri! Being an longtime fan of the DooDah, I reckon I could do some ringleading.

Congrats Cheri! Oh man that costume rocks for sure as well. On a related note my brother-in-law had a bar in pasadena years ago and the regulars at the bar came up with the idea one day at the bar.

If memory serves, there are only human-powered vehicles in the parade. Hey Bax, how many people would it take to pull that trailer of yours, hmmm?

That is a great costume, Cynner! It's not just any mai tai, it's a TV mai tai to boot.

I know that the bands usually perform on flatbed trucks, so human power doesn't appear to be a factor.

I could ask my friend with a 1960 Cadillac if he would provide its services.

Congratulations Cherry! The LBP made the right choice. The Doo Dah Parade is one of my favorite events (right up there with Intl Tiki Day). If I can't catch it "in the flesh" I'll be scouring the airwaves to find it on the tube.
