Doo Dah Parade!

ILION – Thousands lined the streets of Ilion Friday night for the annual Ilion Days Doo Dah Parade, which did not disappoint in music, interest and candy tossed to kids.

Ilion Days’ theme of superheroes could be seen throughout on floats and in costumes. Thor rode a fire truck, and Batman walked the route, stopping to pose for many a selfie with parade goers.

Saturday, July 18, features a full schedule including 5K Road Race, and Family Fun Day in Central Plaza with a craft fair, dog show, superhero costume contest, face painting, games, bounce houses, W.C. Pope caricatures and more. Batman is rumored to be making another appearance during Family Fun Day as well. For the complete schedule, visit
