Everyone, rummage through those closets, dig through those old trunks in the attic, and get working on your outfit because it’s Doo Dah Time!

The parade will begin at 11 a.m. and be on Colorado Blvd. between Altadena and San Gabriel Boulevards. And, as always, this Pasadena tradition is free of charge.

The Mother Truckin’ Food Truck Court (45 N. San Gabriel Blvd., 10 a.m.-3 p.m.) will be held in the Chefs Center parking lot featuring Border Grill, the Greasy Wiener, Mighty Boba and Paradise Cookies.

The Official Doo Dah After-Party will be held at the American Legion (179 N. Vinedo St.) immediately following the festivities where you can hear the Doo Dah House Band, Snotty Scotty and the Hankies, and Horses on Astroturf while imbibing your drink of choice and consuming cheap eats. A $5 cover supports a Legion charity.

Unofficial party locations will be at Poo Bah Records (2636 E. Colorado Blvd.) which will have “live bands all afternoon, records, coolness, and the 2011 Grand Marshal, owner Ron Stivers!” The Colorado Bar (2640 E. Colorado Blvd.) will lure revelers by having cheap eats, darts and pool, and the Infamous Drunk in the Garage band.
