October 25th through the 27th 2013
This event closes down Palm Canyon Dr. for the weekend. This is an event that I enjoy, it is close to home and a nice little ride via Pines to Palms. The weather is still pretty warm at this time, expect the 90′s. It is a relaxing weekend or great if you are a local and just want to go out for a day ride and walk the vendors.
Even locals will stay the weekend and get in some pool time before Autumn sets in. If you want to make this event, Book well in advance. By mid September the less expensive rooms are all but gone and the week before the event you will be hard pressed to find a room west of Rancho Mirage.
Staying in the Palm Canyon area makes it easy to get around using your feet, or short little cab ride if you need one. My last trip I parked my car for the entire weekend. It was awesome. The event and everything I needed was just steps away from my room.
