A marching band plays homemade and found instruments,
parading behind a blank banner to their boisterous dissonance. Two dozen Fidel Castro look-alikes lie down in the middle of
High Street for a siesta. The Fashion Police roam the crazed route, issuing citations to unfortunately dressed spectators.
A group of mimes "wok" in silence, because a mime is a terrible thing to waste.
Anarchy in the streets? It can only be the Doo Dah Parade, the delightful parody of a celebration
that takes to the streets of Victorian Village and the Short North each Independence Day in the true spirit of the American
Revolution. "It's Mardi Gras in Ohio," explained Sharon Morton, one of the parade's disorganizers. "It's
just a lot of fun."
The ''political satire parade . . . to celebrate liberty and lunacy'' has been taking
place since 1983, with the humor occasionally a bit over-the-top.
