Just because there's no snow on the ground in December doesn't mean we don't get in the holiday spirit! Each year on the first Friday in December, as part of its First Weekend festivities, the City of Palm Desert offers residents and visitors alike a chance to "Celebrate the Season" with a very special event held on the center court and lawn at The Gardens on El Paseo.

This year's event will be held on Friday, December 1 from 5:30-7:30pm. The highlight of the evening is a live concert by the Bobby Sanchez Combo, playing 50s covers in the style of Jerry Lee Lewis and Ritchie Valens. The event also offers free pictures with Santa Claus, and entertainment by strolling carolers. Hot cider and cocoa is served, and fun children’s activities led by the Palm Desert Youth Committee will add to the festive spirit. The event is free to all and is guaranteed to light up the holidays for you and your family.
