PALMDALE – The city of Palmdale’s public art program is hosting a Little Antelopes on Parade Kids Coloring Contest in conjunction with the Antelopes on Parade celebration throughout the Antelope Valley.
“We miss seeing our littlest community members around town at community events and at our programs, so we are asking for their help with an important project,” said Palmdale’s Public Art Coordinator George Davis. “We want to collect as many colorful pronghorn antelopes as we can to brighten up our offices and facilities.”
Participants need to download the city-approved coloring sheet at www.cityofpalmdale.org/1008/Antelopes-on-Parade-Kids-Coloring-Contest.
The suggested theme is fall, but other themes and options are acceptable. There are four age categories: 3 and under, ages 4 to 6, ages 7 to 9, and ages 10 to 12. Winners in each category will receive a recreation surprise bag.
Entries are due by Thursday, Oct. 22, at 5 p.m.

About Antelopes on Parade
Taking place every 10 years, Antelopes on Parade celebrates the richness of the region by inviting artists from the Antelope Valley and surrounding mountain and desert communities to create original artworks on 54-inch-tall by 40-inch-wide fiberglass antelope sculptures.
Eight antelope designs will be selected to be produced by the submitting artist and put on display throughout Palmdale and Lancaster.
