OF THE COLDEST DOO DAH PARADE IN HISTORY!
captures the “Libery & Lunacy” of the 25th Annual Doo Dah Parade.
Although it was wet, there was a GREAT turn-out
of participants and spectators - all they had to do was show up! Once again, hundreds of people lined the
parade route with beverages and umbrellas in hand. A few of the “regulars” made their way back
again such as The Marching Fidel’s, Terror Park, The Doo Dah Virgin, the Rocky Horror Picture Show - AND - dare we leave
out Batman! New to the scene this year were the “couple”(?) of a crime-fighting Dynamic Duo
(their presence really “queered it up”). Ever-present political messages dotted the parade
route - from gas prices to a John McCain satire. Finally, of course, it just wouldn’t be the Doo
Dah Parade without the presence of Ms. Doo Dah herself - looking ever-so ravishing - and starting the whole event off!
She was accompanied with the “Less Than Grand Marshall” former Columbus Mayor “Buck” Reinhart.
“Buck” was in great spirits (or maybe sipping “great spirits”) for the parade!
Eventually, the rain stopped - didn’t matter - the Doo Dah Parade went off as planned and the rain date of July
3rd was not needed. A great time as always, the Doo Dah Parade is another example of what makes Columbus
- and it’s residents - very special!
If you missed it this year - HAVE NO FEAR! CowTV is pleased to bring you this installment
where we get up-close and a bit personal with parade participants. A second offering is soon to come that
will show an abbreviated version of the entire parade. Finally, copies of the footage will be made available
with a portion of the proceeds going directly to the Doo Dah Parade organizers - to help pay for next years’ fun!
Enjoy! as always, leave us your feedback!
