About: Friends of Doo Dah – Doo Dah Parade
Friends of Doo Dah produces the wacky annual Doo Dah Parade, which is a cultural legacy of Columbus and the Short North Arts District, known for its diversity and passion for art. Vibrant people march and express their unique humorous thoughts about social, political, civic, or other issues. Nothing and no one is safe from satire.
No other major U.S. city has a 4th of July parade quite like the Doo Dah Parade. The Doo Dah parade is free to march in or to watch, and no registration is required. The day is complete with an all-day free entry to the block party, with free live music. The Annual Doo Dah Parade will once again celebrate liberty and lunacy on July 4 at 1:00pm.
Doo Dah Parade is produced by the Friends of Doo Dah. The parade route lines up at 12:00pm on Park Street and at 1:00pm parades west on Buttles Avenue, south on Dennison Avenue, west on Collins Street, north on Neil Avenue, east on W. Second Avenue, south on N. High Street, and ends at W. Russell Street.
