Susann Edmonds was given the royal nod by a motley assembly of 50 judges and 250 spectators at the American Legion Bar in East Pasadena tonight. She got stiff competition from Mialaka Bonadara who incorporated four large pizzas into her performance and another contender who danced in burlesque style with pasties set to a punk rock tune. Susann, an Altadena resident, woowed judges with her singing enthusiasm and homemade cocktail elixirs.
Her royal majesty and her royal court, comprised of all the queen hopefuls, will entertain the parade on Saturday, April 27th, at 11oclock in the morning. Queen Susann will lead the Queen’s Court, made up of her friends and royal followers. All those who tried out for Queen are encouraged to come and roll with the Queen’s Entourage!
More Info on Queen Tryouts: Organizers staged the first public tryouts in 1998 at a Gothic house on stilts. It then moved to the famed Zorthian Ranch, in Altadena. This and other parodies of Pasadena’s ‘Other Parade’ have fueled Doo Dah’s colorful and controversial life on Colorado Boulevard. The 36th Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade will be held on Saturday, April 27th stepping off at 11:00am on the streets of East Pasadena.
