Palm SpringsFestival of Lights ParadeSaturday December 3, 20165:45 p.m.
The Palm Springs Festival of Lights Parade kicked off for the first time on December 5, 1992 along Palm Canyon Drive and has been held every year since on the first Saturday in December -- becoming a much-loved holiday tradition in downtown Palm Springs! The parade was the brainchild of a small group of community minded individuals who believed it important to offer the Coachella Valley an event that would allow people to celebrate and participate in the spirit and joy of the holiday season while at the same time creating a unique tourism event which over the years has continued to grow – today bringing in an estimated 80,000 people annually to the downtown. Over the past 21 years, the parade has featured a host of marching bands, performing groups as well as the Budweiser Clydesdales, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Snoopy and the Gang – and of course Santa and Mrs. Claus!
Yet more than anything else, it is the parade's signature floats adorned in colorful holiday lights and the famous dancing tractor, the largest in the world, decorated with over 20 miles of lights -- that keeps the crowds coming back for more! Consistently voted one of the best local events in the Coachella Valley, the parade was also voted one of the Top Ten Holiday Parades in the country in an AOL survey. “Over the years, the Festival of Lights Parade has become a beloved holiday tradition in downtown – bringing thousands of Coachella Valley residents and their families as well as tourists from all over the world to come see the twinkling floats while celebrating the joy of the holiday season in Palm Springs,” says Mayor Steve Pougnet. “There’s no other event in the Coachella Valley quite like it!” This year’s parade is slated to kick off at 5:45 pm on Saturday, Dec. 7 at Ramon Road and Palm Canyon Drive. You won’t want to miss it!
Join us June 21-27, 2016, in the magnificent setting of Palm Springs for the best selection of short films and the most exciting lineup of seminars, special presentations and receptions at the largest event of its kind in the country!

The Tour de Palm Springs has raised over $3,000,000 for Coachella Valley charities since 1999.
Tim Esser had an idea on January 31, 1998. He would hold a bike event in Palm Springs that would allow local cyclist to ride 5, 15, 25 and 50 miles. 400 cyclists rode in the first event, known at that time as Spokes for Different Folks. Tim, however, being the guy that never goes only part way, decided to use the event as a launch pad for his own personal ride across America. It took him 30 days to cross the country from Palm Springs, California to Jacksonville, Florida. When it was all over Tim had survived his chase vehicle crashing and catching on fire, a fall that sprained his shoulder, rain in the valleys, snow in the mountains and tornadoes on the plains! But, he made it.
Mother Son Tour de Palm RidersThe first event raised $20,000 and was hailed as a great success by all who participated. Tim, along with his mother Fran, set up a not for profit organization called CVSPIN. Even though many cyclists may think that CVSPIN means to turn over their bicycle pedals as fast as possible in the Coachella Valley, it actually stands for Coachella Valley Serving People In Need. The first Tour de Palm Springs was held in 1999. The number of riders exceeded 1,000 and a 100 mile (century) ride was added. In 2001, the Coachella Valley Desert Business Association recognized the Tour de Palm Springs as the best event in the Valley. The competition included the Bob Hope PGA Tournament, the Dinah Shore LPGA Tournament, The Skins Game and the Tennis Masters Series.Every year the Tour de Palm Springs continues to attract more and more riders. The money generated has gone to help many organizations in the Coachella Valley. In 2015 over $179,000 was donated to 80 local charities that in their own special ways met the varied needs of the people in the Coachella Valley.
