events: The Doo Dah Parade 2012 - 07/04/12 09:44 AM
Doo Dah Parade 2012 went off without a hitch despite the heat.  

My perennial favorites the Marching Fidels were in the 2012 Doo Dah Parade, but there were not as many of the bearded, cigar smoking, khaki clad revolutionaries as other years.  

Queen Elizabeth appeared in the 2012 Doo Dah Parade in Columbus in honor of her Jubilee. 
 

"60 Years on the throne"
Not a lot of presidential politics in the Doo Dah Parade this year.   A bit, but not much really.
Local politics... Is Clintonville seceding?  What did I miss?
The Fishnet Mafia was in … (2 comments)

The photo is a plain old  Ohio rabbit.  This guy (?) was at the … (4 comments)
