Field Day at Palm Desert Civic Center Park

For a fun-for-all-ages community celebration, be sure to join the Palm Desert Youth Sports Association and the City of Palm Desert when they team up to present Field Day at Palm Desert Civic Center Park. The day starts with the Coachella Valley’s biggest baseball opening day party. A ceremony at 11am features the Palm Desert High School Marching Band and a military fly-over, and is followed by a performance by The Reflexx, playing all the greatest rock hits of the 80s. A Wildlife Wonders Show from The Living Desert, classic cars from the Palm Springs Cruisin' Club and a carnival area add to the festivities. There will also be safety and disaster preparedness information, plus information from local police officers, firefighters, Search & Rescue (with horses) and much more as neighbors come together to celebrate and strengthen our great community.  Be sure to come hungry, too, as the event will feature a variety of food trucks including the always popular In ‘N Out Burger truck.
