Crowds filled the street along Sunset Boulevard and Amalfi Drive to kickoff the 65th annual Pacific Palisades Fourth of July parade on Thursday with the traditional sky divers. Carey Peck was the first on the scene as he soared up the block to the thrill of the crowd. Children and their parents swarmed along the route of one the most iconic Independence Day parades in the country. Later in the day, Foo Fighter lead guitarist Chris Shiflett and his band The Dead Peasants played at Palisades Charter High’s Stadium by the Sea preceding a fireworks show.
