Doo Dah Parade

January
Since 1977, the city of Pasadena, Calif., has been the scene of the Doo Dah Parade, a parody of the nationally known Rose Parade. The Rose Parade is held in conjunction with the Rose Bowl football championship, which is held in the same city.
The Doo Dah Parade encourages outrageous, surreal, and imaginative floats, costumes, and themes from all those who participate. The parade takes place in Old Pasadena. Among the groups who have participated are the Fabulous Sons of Ed Wood, Howdy Krishna, Stupidiotic Evolution, Tequila Mockingbird, Horses on Astroturf, and the Doo Dah House Band. Every year an official queen of the Doo Dah Parade is chosen, and she and her court lead the procession.
Sponsored by the nonprofit Light Bringer Project, the parade raises money for the group's art projects, including the Metro Gallery and the Pasadena Chalk Festival.

Its implications are too obvious to call for comment, though it is worth pointing out--as an indication of the forces that have shaped New Labor's thinking--that the phrase itself is neither particularly new, nor particularly British: it was first used by a 1960s pop group, the Bonzo Dog Doodah Band, sporadically revived by journalists, and given wider currency in 1996 when it was adopted as the name of a brand of ice cream distributed in Britain by the American firm of Ben and Jerry's.
