Memorial Day is the time of the year when we honor all those who fell in service of our country. It’s the kind of event that brings an emotional overload to everyone who loves the country and appreciates the sacrifices that have made it what it is today. Palm Springs values Memorial Day and has plenty of events that not only reflect the patriotic fervor that distinguishes this holiday but also add an element of entertainment. Here are some of the most popular events you can find in Palm Springs.
Memorial Day Flower Drop & Air Fair
Palm Springs Air Museum prepares an annual celebration of Memorial Day that is both unique and a delight to watch. Make sure you find a place outside the museum to watch a vintage plane drop over 3,000 red and white carnations. It’s just a small symbol to show our appreciation for those who gave their lives so that we can live free. Also enjoy flight exhibitions, music, food, activities for children, and special programs. Adults will also enjoy the Beer Garden, an area reserved for those 21 and older to have a quiet drink.
Memorial Weekend at The Spa Resort Casino
The Spa Resort Casino has its own celebrations for Memorial Day. Everyone is invited on that special day to enjoy a fantastic show where the stunt BMX team display their talents and skills to the delight of the audience. Admission is free since it’s Memorial Day and we’re all honoring the ultimate sacrifice of our fellow men and women in the military. There are also live DJs getting the crowd up to their feet with their music. Food and drink are abundant and the festivities in the air give this special day a special meaning.
Memorial Day Weekend Block Party
If you prefer outdoor stages and live bands belting out their best music, then the Block Party on the Old Town La Quinta Event Lawn is the place to be on Memorial Day. Restaurants in Old Town are taking part in the party and offering their best menus. They include Stuft Pizza Bar & Grill, La Rue Wine Bar, The Grill on Main, and La Quinta Brewing Co. Local bands provide live entertainment on the outdoor stages. You won’t find a better way to enjoy Memorial Day in Palm Springs.
