Dear Fellow Palisadians,
On behalf of the Palisades Americanism Parade Association (PAPA) board, I’m excited to announce our annual July 4th hometown parade and fireworks show. Subject to approvals from state and local governmental agencies, we’ll bring to you the “Best Day in the Palisades.”
This year’s parade will be filled with local entries, cherished favorites, and incredibly important acknowledgements of our Palisades service organizations. In the evening, we’ll celebrate the independence of our nation with music, food trucks, and fireworks at the Football Field at Palisades High School.
PAPA was founded 75 years ago by Pacific Palisades residents and our own American Legion Post 283 wishing to celebrate the independence of our country each July 4th. We’ve been generously supported over those years by the community and the Legion. Please join your neighbors today by making a tax-deductible donation at click here, and you too can be a supporter.
I’ve been asked to share with you the exciting news of the return of the Palisades Will Rogers 5k and 10k Run, a July 4th morning tradition for 45 years. Keep an eye out for more information soon.
Please keep an eye out for exciting information over the next many weeks, with opportunities to submit your ideas for the parade theme, participate in the Home Decorating Contest, and to volunteer on July 4th.
We look forward to seeing you July 4th!
Matthew Rodman, PAPA President
