Well, I did not have the opportunity to mention Trader Pup's MaiTaiCycles - which I was planning to - cause they were running late on the news... BUT I did get to mention Cynful's giant Trader Vic's Tiki Mug!!! woo hoo!

Oh, and Laney should know that last year (this was hard to explain to my daughter) the "Viagra Marching Team" demonstrated the success of their medication with some sort of inflatable gadget under their hospital robes.



Oh no, this was what I was curious about... but we'll still be there. Haven't committed to marching.
How many will march?
If I decide to, can I pay in cash????

I have a boom box but it's small and probably not too loud. But I can bring it as well as plastic tiki cups. I have tons of aloha wear if anyone needs to borrow a muumuu or something. I saw tiki torches at 99 cent store. Do we need some of those???

I was at a cheesy swap meet and picked up dozens of shell leis (they were $1 a dozen), but when I got home I could barely fit one over my head. So they'd be perfect for kids in the crowd, I'll bring those too, if you want. I read we aren't supposed to throw stuff so we'd have to hand them out.

Tikifille, can't wait to finally talk to you, you are my woman hero.

Aw, Cherry I missed you on KNX.


Here is some more Parade info provided by the Doo Dah website:

PARKING:
Public Parking: Convenient parking is located at a number of parking structures located on the north and south side of Raymond Avenue and the North and South side of Fair Oaks a Colorado Blvd. Parking is also available by meter throughout the city.

DIRECTIONS:

FROM 210 FWY: Exit at Fair Oaks/Marengo off ramp. Proceed south on Fair Oaks to Colorado (approx. 1/4 mile), which is the heart of the parade route and look for convenient parking.

FROM 134 EAST/WEST:

Get off on Fair Oaks/Marengo exit. Same directions as above.

FROM THE 110 (PASADENA/HARBOR FRWY:
Take the freeway to the end, which empties onto Arroyo Parkway. Follow Arroyo North to Del Mar Avenue (approximately 1/2 mile) and turn left. Turn right on Raymond Avenue (1 block) and proceed north a block or two for convenient parking. Parade is 2-3 blocks north of Del Mar at Raymond and Colorado.
__________________________________




I called the Doo Dah office to find out when the streets will be closed and they informed me that the streets along the parade route (including Colorado itself) will be open until about 10:00 AM.

You can give your $10.00 to me the morning of the parade in case you weren't able to Paypal-it. Being the "Contact Person" I am supposed to check in the group, pay any remaining entry fees and pick up the entry stickers that we are all supposed to wear.

Given that the area is a low population density area, I can't see a commercial use of it.

But I can see them trying to get people to live in the area, and then tearing other stuff down to put in commercial space.

Oh if someone has a cooler, it would come in handy for the ice.

As far as what booze to bring, I'd say either bring some beer ( not so tiki I know, but very surfer ), or try and bring the ingredients to your fave drink.

I'm going to try and procure a coctail shaker.

I'll give Tina my contact info, and then hook up with the crew at the parade, after the marching has occured. My building has a code for the door, which I will give to Tina also. So try and stick together!

If there are any additional attendees, please contact me. I'd like to get a handle on how many people will be stopping by.

Still in the air is that slide projector...

well, I've got the Witco rolling...

But it looks like rain...I hope it dosen't rain on our parade!

What do I need to bring? Planning on bringing the float, necklaces to give away a few plastic tiki cups, some type of booze, a few extra crazy hats for people to wear.

Do I NEED to bring chairs, the boom box (someone would need to buy 8 size C batteries, I don't have them)anything else?

Does anyone know how long the route is???
I've worked til bar close the past few nights, and gotten up early too. just want to prepare myself. Yipes

It looks like rain, but the forecast doesn't seem to predict it.

The parade route is short, but the actual length of the parade depends on the number of participants. It can last quite awhile.

I've given Tina my phone number. If you want to drop off any party supplies before the parade begins, contact her or PM me.

As far as chairs go, maybe a couple. We have three lounge chairs, and four chairs and a table on our patio. Given that attendance looks to be about 8 to a dozen, I think we're ok.

That said, if thirty people show up who didn't get in contact with me, well then the supplies and booze might not last for long, nor will my wits.

As far as food, chips dip, or whatever you're willing to bring.

I'm diggin out my surf cds ( few ) and some other exotica/crooner ala Sinatra stuff. If you have a fave exotica cd bring it along.

Well Aloha - it is raining now here at my home, but have no fear - rain or shine - doo dah show has always gone on through rain before and actually - the forecast says it should clear up by tomorrow.

but maybe bring an umbrella just in case. - think of it as hukilau or mondo lounge parts II - both events had some rain - but we know that everyone who made it to those events had a great time - the tiki spirit will not be foiled!!!

-------------------

laney, please do bring your blaster - i will bring batteries. the route is 5-6 blocks - so not very long at all...
oh - fun hats sound good - i will bring some extra tiki shakers in case anyone wants to shake along to the Ape CD?

-------------------

i have been invited to the "official seating area" for doo dah - and can bring 9-10 guests along... (and can probably sneak more in) so that just about covers everyone who has said they will be marching. so non-marchers please try and find a spot near us if you can?

the address is 64 north raymond - i believe it is near the beginning of the parade route - so we'll march the parade and then head back towards the beginning area.

----------------------

marchers - we have been talking about a coordinated drink from our tiki mugs followed by a unison shaka sign! so bring your mugs for marching - and also for tiki gardeners later...

---------------------

tiki gardener, i hope you can drum up a slide projector - cause seeing those slides would be a royal treat!

----------------------

last, but not least - our very own hukilau brown is gonna be my chauffer on the haole mobile!

No one has come forward with a projector yet.

But I have covered the cushions for the lounge chairs with a drop cloth so they hopefully won't be damp tomorrow.

While my patio garden likes the rain, lets hope it will stop soon.

well, just got home from work and it was POURING I got soaked just picking up my son. Luckily I covered my Witco float (I assembled it outside) with a tarp before I left for work. I hope no damage was done, aside from the few holes I drilled in the bottom.
If there's the slightest bit of rain, I don't think I'm marchin. I don't want to pull my stool in the rain, or even want to load it in my little car. I had planed on putting the top down and hopefully it would slide into the back seat. I don't want to chance it in the truck.
Damn Rain!

We will be there with the radio to cheer! See ya soon!

Well, what a day!!! The Queen of The Doo Dah Parade has just left the building! I'd like to thank everyone for stopping by. And for such a slap dash affair, I'd say it turned out quite well.

The surprise visit by Count Smokula made the evening, accordian music and tikis!

Ok, I have to run and get the place ship shape.

But again, the tiki central folks looked great, and the party goers were the best...
particularly given that my place is so small! I'm sure you'll see the pictures soon enough...
