It never quite seems like our desert holiday season has actually arrived until the Festival of Lights gets underway in Palm Springs.
Palm Springs, CA (PRWEB) December 01, 2015
Brad Schmett, Broker Associate with Luxury Homes by Keller Williams today announced that the upcoming December 5, Festival of Lights Parade, presented by the City of Palm Springs, will be a huge boost for the local real estate community as celebrants arrive in Palm Springs to enjoy the annual tradition. Always held on the first Saturday in December, the parade begins at 5:45 PM at Ramon road and heads northbound on Palm Canyon Drive to Tamarisk Road.
Celebrity Grand Marshal, champion skateboarder Tony Hawk will oversee the festivities this year. The parade generally lasts between 90 minutes and two hours and includes over 80 entries encompassing marching bands, giant helium balloons, lighted floats and equestrian units, drill teams and drum squads. The parade is about 1.25 miles long and is always well attended with well over 100,000 spectators annually.
Schmett recently remarked, “It never quite seems like our desert holiday season has actually arrived until the Festival of Lights gets underway in Palm Springs. From Palm Springs to Coachella, the entire Valley is alive with the lights, sights, and sounds of the holiday season. Whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa or any other holiday time, there is no place quite as special in which to do it. It is all about family and harmony and peace. We all enjoy making wonderful memories with the people we love and embracing the common experiences that bind us all together as a community. We are delighted to welcome all our visitors.”
This signature Palm Springs Community Event is open and free to the public. Located in the heart of Palm Springs, there is ample parking and plenty of great places to shop, have dinner or a festive drink, following the parade. Desert nights can be chilly, so attendees are encouraged to dress warmly. The city of Palm Springs has designated two locations for persons with disabilities to view the parade and comfort. Everyone is welcomed.
