The 4th of July Doo Dah Parade is a virtual thrift store Mardi Gras with ambiguosly-political¬†undertones. I think? The annual procession through Short North serves as a community forum for anyone to parody the most ridiculous, obscene, or tacky events of the past year. It’s also a semi-elaborate freak show for people to dress up however they please and flaunt their eccentricity to hundreds of people. While various paraders dressed like incompetent IRS employees or vegans marched to raise awareness of meat-free humanitarianism, there were still cars adorned with babydoll parts and an out-of-shape Batman scaring small children. Most intelligent city in America, mind you.¬†
