Ever since the Palisades Americanism Parade Association (PAPA) began organ- izing the Fourth of July parade in 1967, a theme has been a tradition. Last year, Eric Weiss won with the theme “Independence Day—the Palisades Way.”
PAPA is once again asking residents to submit a clever or witty or poignant or memorable theme for the 2017 parade. Themes need to be short—ideally, two or three word phrases.
Submit your best idea(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 5 at 5 p.m. If your theme is selected, you will be invited to ride in the parade atop a Station 69 fire truck, and the Palisades News will feature you in a story.
