About the Parade:

Do‐Dah Parade has been a tradition for 40 years.  It started in 1984, when WKMI organizers designed the parade as a way for companies and organizations to provide unique entertainment through a parody and host a parade that wasn’t “stuffy.”  The purpose remains the same – create the un‐structured, spontaneous, and totally hilarious parade. Each year, participants are challenged to reinvigorate the meaning of “Do‐Dah” (a parody based on an ironic and iconic use of a person, place, event or thing).

VOTING FOR YOUR FAVORITE PARADE UNIT IS A BIG PART OF THE DO-DAH FUN!
(VOTING IS CURRENTLY CLOSED UNTIL THE 2024 PARADE)
