Ocean City's weird and wonderful Doo Dah Parade, complete with a cavalcade of impersonators,  basset hounds and shaving cream pies to the face, struts down the Ocean City Boardwalk this Saturday, April 11th at 1pm.

The 30th annual happening is much more than a parade, though.

"Doo Dah" is now an entire weekend of off-center events and a great deal of fun for the thousands who come to town to enjoy, making this one of Ocean City's  biggest "shoulder weekends".

The festivities begin Friday at 2pm with the Basset Hound Olympics at the Ocean City Tabernacle at 6th and Asbury Avenue.
