One of the largest events in Palm Springs is the annual Pride Weekend, which includes a two-hour parade on Sunday. It is a wonderful event, and more people come each year to see and participate. This year, an estimated 70,000 people came into town for the event. An out of town friend asked me why we have Pride in November instead of June, like the rest of the country. It’s simple, in June the temperatures in the desert are over a hundred and ten degrees.
