Palm Springs Follies

Always entertaining     the Palm Springs Follies Returns for another year in downtown Palm Springs at the Plaza Theatre October 27, 2010.
Get your tickets well in advance as this popular show sells out show after show season after season.  Shows will run through May 2011 when their season comes to a close.

The show is a mix of Vegas glitz, vaudeville, comedy singing and dancing that will surely have something for everyone in the house.  There is a holiday show as well as rotating guest stars that have, in the past, included The Mills Brothers, Kaye Ballard, Rita Coolidge, Gloria Loring and the Kingston Trio.   See a video clip of the Palm Springs follies.  Just another fun thing to do

Palm Springs Art Museum - Day Of The Dead

October 30 From 11am -4pm immerse yourself in this interesting cultural event. Best of all it is free and open to all. Thank you Palm Springs Art Museum!  With everything from dancing, music, food and crafts plus specially built altars it is a fascinating look at this Holiday.

Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de los Muertos) is a holiday celebrated by many in Mexico and by some Mexican Americans living in the United States and Canada. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. Read more at Wikipedia

Although the close proximity (Nov 2 is the official date)  to the more widely known Halloween celebration in the United States confuses some people, this holiday has nothing to do with Halloween.  The day opens with A Folklore Ballet outside on the steps of the Museum.  Don't miss it!
