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.

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.

A portion of concert proceeds will benefit the Palisades H.S. music program.
