Festival of Lights parade returns to Palm Springs

One year after its postponement because of COVID-19, Palms Springs is bringing back its annual Festival of Lights Parade.

The parade, the city’s premiere holiday event, is scheduled to begin at 5:45 p.m. Dec. 4 along Palm Canyon Drive, according to a statement on the city’s website.

The parade will be telecast live by NBC Palm Springs. Mariah Hanson, founder of Dinah Shore Weekend, and Linda Barrack, chief executive officer of Martha’s Village and Kitchen, will serve as community grand marshals.

“After a long period of pandemic restrictions, the City of Palm Springs is thrilled to once again celebrate the joy of the holiday season with our residents and visitors at the Palm Springs Holiday Tree Lighting and the Festival of Lights Parade,” said Mayor Christy Holstege in the statement.

One day before the parade, the city will host its annual Christmas Tree Lighting at Frances Stevens Park, 500 N. Palm Canyon Drive. That ceremony is scheduled to begin at 5:15 p.m.
