Have you yearned to be a Doo Dah insider, but haven’t found an opportunity? Here’s your chance!
McGinty’s Gallery at the End of the World in Altadena will again sponsor the outgoing queen float for the 33rd Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade on May 1. It will honor 32nd Queen Skittles in a manner befitting her personality and reign. Artist Dave Lovejoy will head the project, as he did last year, as float designer, creating the concept and leading volunteers in bringing it to fruition. I wil be serving as his assistant.
Here’s where you come in. We need donations of materials, time and talent and in return, you will be welcome to march with our entry down the brand spanking new route in East Pasadena on the big day.
We are planning to use as many repurposed materials as possible. We are especially in need of large pieces of cardboard, such as refrigerator boxes, television boxes, bicycle boxes, etc. We can also use paint, decorative ribbons, rickrack and other notions and items that will make the float sparkle.
Volunteers will be needed to craft the materials into shapes and decorate them accordingly at the Gallery on three Saturdays:
April 10, 17 and 24
Please watch my blog for more information as to when you may drop off materials and times for float creating/decorating. You do not need any special talents or artistic ability to help with the float~ we’ll find something that you can do and will have fun doing too!
