How some people explain Doo Dah:

 

Craziest Parade in History

Doo Dah!  Doo Dah

Humorous! Fun! Fantastic

Liberty & Lunacy

Freedom of Speech, through humor

Express yourself

It’s a very important day for the Marching Fidel’s

Satirical

Unique

Symbolic of how Columbus is

You can be who you want to be and have a great time doing it

It’s all meant in Jest and fun

Important for a mother to show her daughter all the uniqueness and diversity

Laughter is the best medicine
