A Dandy Doo Dah Day

The Columbus Italian Club marched in the 28th annual Doo Dah Parade to announce its attempt at cooking a world's record 1,000-pound meatball this October.

The Meatball Guys — also known as the Columbus Italian Club — participated in the 28th annual Doo Dah Parade on July 4.

On the Fourth of July, members of the CIC walked the parade route through Columbus’ Short North along side our meatball-making oven. The crowd support was great. People lined the parade route and cheered us on. At the site of the oven, many remembered us from our world’s record attempt last year.

The CIC decided to participate in the Doo Dah Parade as a way to announce that we are once again attempting break the world’s record and cook a 1,000-pound meatball at the Columbus Italian Festival on Oct. 7-9 at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church.

We had a blast in the Doo Dah Parade and we hope those who cheered us on will do so again this October. Until then, we have plenty of things planned and work to do. To keep up-to-date with the latest goings on, follow us on Facebook, on Twitter and here at CICMeatball.com.

And the answer to the obvious questions is, “Yes, Miss Meatball is available for parties.”

Note:  Miss Meat’s real name was redacted to protect the guilty.

A few fellas from the CIC picked up the oven at the club's headquarters in Grandview the morning of the Doo Dah Parade.

The CIC had plenty of banners on display, including the fan-favorite, "We've got the biggest balls!"

Of course the star of the show was the one-of-a-kind cooking vessel the CIC used last year. It will need to be modified this year for the 1,000-pound meatball.
