Happy Fourth of July and Canada Day!

While you won't find any big signature events in the Palm Springs area this month, there is still plenty going on to keep both visitors and locals busy. We have fantastic 4th of July activities throughout the valley, some wonderful live theatre, many great musical acts, and the ever-popular dive-in movies … there’s something to please every taste!
