Kids on Bikes

Sponsored by The Yogurt Shoppe

This Independence Day, The Yogurt Shoppe will continue its decade-long tradition of sponsoring the "Kids on Bikes" unit in the July 4th parade and the "Best Decorated Bike/Scooter Contest" for local Palisades kids.

Participants are encouraged to decorate their bikes and come to the parade assembly point for "Kids on Bikes" at 1 pm on July 4th for the opportunity to enter the Best Decorated Bike/Scooter Contest.

All judging will take place at 1:30 pm at the parade start location (in front of Pali Elementary at the corner of Bowdoin and Via de la Paz). Four lucky winners will earn a $50 gift card valid at any TYS store, and have their photos taken before riding in the parade!

Please print, fill in and sign the Participant Waiver and bring it to parade line-up area, and join the rest of the Kids on Bikes/Scooters for a fun time!

The Yogurt Shoppe and parade organizers would love to document this exciting event. Parents/guardians - please take pictures and tag @theyogurtshoppe, #palisades4thkidsonbikes and #PalisadesJuly4.

Please note that all participants must submit a completed release form prior to participating in the parade. Click here for the form

All "Kids on Bikes" participants are asked to meet between 1:00 and 1:15 on July 4th on the sidewalk at Bowdoin near the Palisades Elementary marquee, just below the corner of Via de la Paz. Participants should come with a parent or guardian, who will need to sign a participation form on their behalf and accompany them along the parade route. (This is not a drop-off activity.) Water bottles are recommended, and bike helmets are required. Kids and their guardians/parents may leave the parade at any time along the route.

To ensure everyone's safety, we ask that the "Kids on Bikes" and their parents/guardians mingle and ride with their fellow Palisadians in a manner that reflects their awareness of those around them – both on and off the parade route – and at a safe rate of speed. The Kids on Bikes participants and their guardians/parents will be directed to go to the Palisades branch of the public library (861 Alma Real Drive) at the end of the parade route, to meet up with members of their family not participating in the parade with them.
