The Palisades Pop Stars, including Lily Shafroth (center), 18, of Washington, dance their way down MacArthur Boulevard Northwest in Washington on Monday, July 4, 2011, as part of the Palisades July Fourth parade. The girls decided it would be fun to march, so they donned costumes and called themselves the Pop Stars. (Barbara L. Salisbury/The Washington Times)
