Robolights (through Jan. 8): A total must-see for the Sci-fi fan in your group. Be astonished by this remarkable display of brightly lit creative work. Viewing the installation is free, but donations are accepted.
27th Annual Festival of Lights: And last, but certainly not least, The Palm Springs Festival of Lights Parade held every year on the first Saturday in December and has become a much-loved holiday tradition in downtown Palm Springs! The parade's must-see signature floats decorated in colorful holiday lights and huge Macy's-style balloons keep the crowds coming back year after year!
Because the warm temperatures turn into triple digits in the summer, the winter holiday season is the best time to visit Palm Springs! Although January and April's temperatures are pleasant and this is great for the outdoor activities, remember Bing Crosby, the man who first and most famously sang "White Christmas," was a regular in the desert. However, since it is the peak season, hotel room rates might be high.
