Because I’m awesome, I shot video and stills at the same time at this weekend’s Doo Dah Parade. My favorite shot is the swing dancers. There was a pickup truck leading them and playing music, so I jumped on it and shot video with my GoPro from the moving truck.
The audio is OC ReMix #2736: Donkey Kong Country ‘Percussion Hijinx’ [DK Island] by Acadia Percussion Ensemble
by David Wise, Eveline Novakovic, and Robin Beanland. If you like it, you can also find it here: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR02736
It’s some great music, so be sure to show them some love.
Muppet bike gangs, Rocky Horror homage, robots, superheroes, and monsters; why did I only find out about Columbus’s Doo Dah parade this year? For those equally naive as I was, the Doo Dah parade is an annual celebration of… well… anything you want. The fact that there are no real rules on who can get a float, no set pace for the flow of the parade, and strong encouragement of general lunacy make this a one-of-a-kind event that I loved being a part of. If you were at the parade, please, feel free to share these around so everyone who participated can have a look.
I snagged some video along with stills (because I’m awesome like that), so keep an eye out for a compilation coming soon.
