The Best Day of the Year in Pacific Palisades is almost here!
PAPA is proud to announce the lineup of events for this year’s Fourth of July Celebration.
65th Annual Pacific Palisades Fourth of July Parade
The highlight of every July Fourth is the Pacific Palisades parade, which has grown to be one of the top Independence Day parades in the entire U.S.A. Come join your neighbors and enjoy the best bands and equestrian units in the country, marching along side our very own community groups, local celebrities, neighbors and kids. Our 2013 Parade Grand Marshal will be announced soon.
Palisades Rocks the Fourth
As the sun sets, Pacific Palisades resident and Foo Fighter lead guitarist Chris Shiflett will headline a two-and-a-half hour, family friendly concert at Palisades Charter High’s Stadium by the Sea with his band Chris Shiflett and The Dead Peasants. The town will be dancing, singing and waving the flag as they enjoy a fabulous and diverse sampling of world-class local entertainers, from traditional patriotic tunes to rock and roll. A portion of concert proceeds will benefit the Palisades H.S. music program.
Pacific Palisades Fireworks Spectacular
The day will be brought to a thunderous conclusion by the annual fireworks pageant at Stadium by the Sea, once again presented by world famous Pyro Spectaculars.
