Do Dah Day

Well, the time has already passed for this event but I like to post about local events and this is a popular one, so here is some info about Do Dah Day.
31 years now; wow it's almost as old as I am. lol

"Today, Do Dah Day is Birmingham’s oldest event.  A music festival that, in its infancy was enjoyed by 200 fun-loving Birmingham citizens, now sees more than 40,000 people from all over the United States converge on Birmingham’s Historic Highland Parks for a day of fun, food and music with their pets.  Raising more than $536,000 since 1992 for Jefferson County animal shelters, Do Dah Day is one of the city’s most cherished springtime events.
Do Dah Day has always been — and still is today — a 100% volunteer organization"

Dogs, dog-related contests and events, bands, a kid's area, and parade which features an elected King & Queen to help raise more funds (Each $1 donated is worth one vote for the candidate of your choice).
Don't forget the sponsors and the vendors.

See some photos in this news article. There were even some cleverly costumed companions this year.
