Patriotic Pups To March in Palisades Fourth of July Parade

If you have a dog that gets along with other dogs and doesn’t panic when it sees a horse, then consider marching with the Patriotic Pups in the Fourth of July parade.

For the past 21 years, between 70 and 100 dogs trot along the parade route with their owners, wowing the crowd with their resolute cuteness. All potential marchers should call Marilyn Haaker at (310) 454-6430 and leave their name, telephone number and the pup’s name.

Shortly before the parade begins at 2 p.m., owners and canines meet under the trees at Palisades Elementary, corner of Via de la Paws (Paz) and Bowdoin. Owners should bring water for their pets.
