Party Hard on the 4th with Friends and Family at the Pacific Palisades Parade

June 05, 2018

In less than a month, fireworks will blanket the skies across the United States in celebration of the nation’s founding. If you’ll be here in Los Angeles on the 4th and would like to partake in some patriotic festivities, check out the Pacific Palisades Parade, just a half-hour drive from our hotel. Now in its 70th year, the Pacific Palisades Parade attracts thousands of revelers ready for a day of fun. Things kick off a little before 2 P.M. when a troupe of red-white-and-blue bedecked skydivers barrel down from the heavens to uproarious applause. Very soon thereafter the procession of percussionists, horn players, acrobats, and dancers step off on Sunset Blvd. between Drummond and Via de la Paz. While there’s no charge for general admission, for just $50, you can snag a premium spot in the VIP section of the grandstands. After the parade, stick around for the concert, followed later by a gorgeous fireworks display illuminating the night sky.

You'll find the grandstands between 15120 and 15140 Sunset Blvd., Pacific Palisades, CA 90272.
