Decorating Contest and Parade
Youth who want to enter the bicycle decorating contest must come to The Yogurt Shoppe at 873 Swarthmore (across from CVS) with their decorated bike between 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 3. Authorization forms will be handed out and a photo of each entry will be taken.
Judges will scrutinize photos, and awards will be presented on July 4 as the bike owners assemble for the parade (at Palisades Elementary). Only those who have had their photos taken on July 3 will be eligible for prizes.
There will be a $75, $50 and $25 yogurt gift card for first, second and third place.
Youth do not need to enter the contest to ride in the parade. Riders need a helmet and a completed authorization form, which can be picked up before the parade at The Yogurt Shoppe, or downloaded from the parade website (visit: palisades4th.com).
On July 4, bike riders will assemble at the beginning of the parade route on Via de la Paz at Bowdoin between 1:15 and 1:30 p.m. Kids should come with their parents and guardians; water bottles are recommended. Parade start time is 2 p.m. Participants can leave the parade route at any time.
