You Know It’s a New Season in the Desert, When the Golf Cart Parade Shows Up!
The 51st Golf Cart Parade is almost here!
This year’s theme, “Area 51: Palm Desert is Out of this World,” promises lots of creative and fun entries.
Experience the spectacular color, pageantry and fun as scores of whimsically decorated golf carts and bands march down Palm Desert’s famous shop-’til-you-drop El Paseo, in the first major event of the season!
Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade is exactly what its name implies or states– it is a parade of decorated golf carts.
With a full list of activities planned, including the Palm Desert Rotary Pancake Breakfast, a Golf Cart Car Show, a Kids’ Play Zone and more, families can experience an entire day of festive fun for everyone.
Since the early 1960s, this festive parade has been a favorite around town. The parade was launched by a couple of fun-seeking people. The parade didn’t become an annual event until 1983 when enough people decided it was worth investing the time and energy to produce it annually.
And while it once had a “Christmas in July” theme, the Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade is now an annual – and highly anticipated – late October event.
The parade itself starts on Sunday, October 25, 2015 at 1:00 p.m., and the parade route will follow El Paseo, westbound, from San Luis Rey to Occotillo. Finding a place to park won’t be a problem since there are several parking lots and a parking structure in the area.
