About the Parade:

Do-Dah Parade started in 1984, when WKMI organizers designed the parade as a way for companies and organizations to provide unique entertainment through a parody. It was patterned after the Pasadena, California Parade called Doo Dah. The purpose remains the same – use a parody to create a laughable and satire-fun parade that will create conversation. Each year, participants are challenged to reinvigorate the meaning of “Do-Dah” (a parody based on a spoof or a satire). The parade has been part of the Kalamazoo landscape for over 35 years. It's a tradition and it is the "funniest" parade.

VOTING FOR YOUR FAVORITE PARADE UNIT IS A BIG PART OF THE DO-DAH FUN!

(VOTING IS CURRENTLY CLOSED UNTIL THE 2023 PARADE)
