The 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.
