Palmdale Celebrates 60th Birthday at Music in the Parks

PALMDALE – The City of Palmdale welcomes everyone to celebrate Palmdale’s 60th Birthday with music, special treats, activities, photo opportunities, giveaways while supplies last, and of course, birthday cake and the singing of “Happy Birthday” on Thursday, Aug. 25 from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. at Domenic Massari Park, 37716 55th St. East, for the final Music in the Parks event. The celebration and activities begin at 5:00 p.m., with the singing of “Happy Birthday” and a cake cutting ceremony at 5:30 p.m. 

“We have so much to celebrate for Palmdale’s 60th Birthday, and I hope our entire community will join us,” said Palmdale Mayor Steve Hofbauer. “We will have some special commemorative items, so you can show your Palmdale pride.” Classic rock entertainment will be provided by Midnite Crisis, performing following the cake cutting ceremony. The event concludes at 7:30 p.m. The entire event is free to attend. Food and beverages will be available for purchase from food trucks. Guests may bring their own food, blankets, and lawn chairs. No alcohol is allowed in the parks. The City of Palmdale was incorporated on August 24, 1962. At that time, the city was only 2 square miles with a population of approximately 7,100. Today, Palmdale is home to more than 169,450 people. 

Nestled in the picturesque and expansive Antelope Valley, Palmdale is the birthplace of stealth technology and home to some of the world’s largest aerospace companies like Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company, Northrop Grumman, The Boeing Company, and NASA.

Even with its continued growth, Palmdale maintains the small-town values of a family-oriented community while enjoying the conveniences of a thriving metropolitan area. It has been an amazing journey with many successes along the way, and a promise to residents of yesterday, today, and tomorrow that the future will remain bright.
