The 52nd annual Palisades July 4th Parade and Picnic celebrated America’s Independence Day with a spirited waving of hands and flags among paraders and spectators on MacArthur Boulevard.
On hand were politicians — Mayor Muriel Bowser, Council members Mary Cheh, Jack Evans and Vincent Gray — along with cowboys, Inca dancers, boatsmen, demonstrators and others, some of whom tossed candy out to the children. The parade is put on the Palisades Citizens’ Association.
Though the day was 90-something degrees, many went to the picnic afterwards to enjoy lemonade, watermelon and hot dogs on Sherier Place, where the mayor cut the ribbon to open the new Palisades Recreation Center, modernized at a cost of $9.5 million.
