In keeping with the theme of the Coal Camp Creations Arts & Crafts Fair, we’re reviving something "vintage": the Doo Dah Parade from the early days of Pittsburg’s Little Balkans Festival!
And what better day for a Doo Dah Parade than April Fool’s Day?! Ours will be on Saturday — the first day of our Arts & Crafts Fair — at 2 p.m. Open to anyone in a costume of any type, children, dance teams, cheer teams, jugglers — pretty much anything goes except motorized vehicles.
Organizer Steve Robb is working on finding an Uncle Sam and a drum corps to lead the parade, which will make a circuit around the Mall at least once, or perhaps twice depending on the number of participants. No registration is necessary; just show up at 1:45! We’ll announce more details in coming days!
Meanwhile, take a moment to explore our website and learn more about this new Pittsburg event!
