60th Season of Old Miners’ Days Activities Start Next Weekend; Do You Want to Doo Dah?

oldminers09-thumbThe 60th annual Old Miners’ Days season gets underway with a summer-full of local events, starting next weekend with the Chili Cook-Off. The first parade of the season rolls through downtown Fawnskin on Saturday the 18th, and entries are still being welcomed for this, the 33rd annual Doo Dah Parade, which is said to have once been in the Guinness Book of World Records for shortest parade. The Doo Dah is always a fun affair and any and all amusing entries are welcome—cost to participate in the Doo Dah is just $10 and free for non-profits. This year’s Grand Marshall of the Doo Dah has just been named, and that is 12-year-old world-class mountaineer and Fawnskin resident Jordan Romero, who just so happens to be the grandson of parade judge, retired Judge Bob Drake. For more specifics on parade participation, see our story dated June 12; for Old Miners’ event specifics, click on “Big Bear Events” in the sidebar at right.

The 2008 Doo Dah Parade included Fawnskin's Honorary Mayor Gene Cyr as "The Executioner."
