How some people explain Doo Dah:
Craziest Parade in History
Doo Dah! Doo Dah
Humorous! Fun! Fantastic
Liberty & Lunacy
Freedom of Speech, through humor
It’s a very important day
for the Marching Fidel’s
Symbolic of how Columbus is
You can be who you want to be and have a great time doing it
all meant in Jest and fun
Important for a mother to show her daughter all the uniqueness
Laughter is the best medicine
