Body
WHEREAS, the Columbus Doo Dah Parade is an annual parade that takes place each July 4th in the Short North and Victorian Village neighborhoods of Columbus; and
WHEREAS, the Columbus Doo Dah Parade began in 1983 as a small, disorganized march down the sidewalks of High Street in The Short North by regulars of the Short North Tavern; and

WHEREAS, the Doodah Parade is funded by charitable donations and is produced by a non-profit, 501(c)3 charity, based solely on volunteers; and
WHEREAS, this year, the Columbus Doo Dah Parade celebrates its 30-year anniversary of once again celebrating liberty and lunacy; now, therefore
BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF COLUMBUS:
