PALMDALE – The City of Palmdale’s Thursday Night on the Square event this evening (July 10) will feature a dog parade, art exhibit and swing music.
“This week’s theme is Art Attack and kids will be able to use shaving cream and paint to create a cool picture frame, a crayon candle and a glass tile mosaic,” said Palmdale Recreation Supervisor Annie Pagliaro.
Also featured will be the Pawcasso Pooch Parade, where participants may artistically dress up their dogs for a special parade in which prizes will be awarded for the best canine costumes.
This week also marks the opening of the new ARTown Fusion Exhibit. More than 35 local artists will have works on display at Legacy Commons for all to see and enjoy.
TNOTS begins at 5:30 pm and ends at 8:30 pm tonight (July 10) in Poncitlán Square (9th St. East between Ave. Q-9 & Ave. Q-10).
Now in its 14th year, TNOTS offers free live music, enticing food, free City activities for kids and an open-air market featuring specialty items. New this year is the addition of the Holland Ranch, a local organic farm that will offer certified organic varieties of vegetables and fruits.
Free entertainment and activities include:
- Live music in the gazebo until 8:30 pm, sponsored by Valleywide Dental.
- The Game Garden featuring a variety of board games for all ages.
- The Children’s Art & Activity Center, open while supplies last.
- Camp TNOTS, featuring guest storytelling at 6:30 and 7:30 pm; Easel Art, Origami Creatures, Washi World & Rockin’ Art.

In addition to the music and activities, one lucky person will get caught “green-handed” – disposing of recyclable and nonrecyclable waste in the proper container. That person will win a special prize, courtesy of Waste Management.
