Golf cart parade

Every year the city of Palm Desert holds a Golf Cart Parade on the first Sunday in November. It's the real deal – floats (all built on golf carts), marching bands, flag twirlers, dignitaries, pre-parade and post-parade entertainment, and so forth.

The theme of this year's parade, the 38th, was "A Valley of Dreams" and over 100 entries made their way down El Paseo Drive, billed as "the Rodeo Drive of the desert."

Mark your calendars — next year's parade will be on Sunday November 2, 2003.
