DOO'S & DOON'TS OF DOO DAH

  • ALL POLITICIANS, and everyone in the entourage, MUST WEAR A FUNNY HAT! And, have something funny to say! 
  • NO OBVIOUS COMMERCIAL ADVERTISING…that’s a BIG NO-NO!!  (For example...if you are driving a car representing a "car fixing place" with your logo on it (and nothing else), that's advertising.  Or, are you saying take a sledge hammer to it and see if I can fix it?)
  •  NO FULL NUDITY!
  •  NO WATER, NO KIDDING!  Please don’t ruin people’s art.
  •  Please don’t throw candy to the crowd from the parade.  This only entices kids to run into the parade, and we know what can happen. 
  •  Don't run up to moving cars in the parade.
  •  NO PASSING ZONE.  Please let the entry in front of you perform. Not only is it dangerous to pass, it keeps the crowd from seeing their message or yours.  Besides, you wouldn't want to run over a Fidel taking a Siesta would you?!
  •  If you’re on a bicycle, scooter, segway, you know...things with wheels, these rules apply to you too!
  •  No Vendors "on" the streets. (except our T-Shirt people, of course)
  •  It's not a race.  We have a permit until 3:00 p.m.  But, remember you and everyone else have to be at BEGINNING AGAIN.  So, try to keep your skits “moveable”.  (Don't forget, there are Less-Than-Honorable Judges at THE END).
  •  DOO HAVE FUN!
  •  DOO LAUGH A LOTLOT!
  •  DOO Stop at White Castle or at Kathy’s "the water lady's house", both on 2nd Ave for FREE water.
  •  DOO park somewhere that you won't get a ticket or towed.  

F.Y.I - There is no one from Doo Dah going around "collecting for Doo Dah".
