The first weekend in November is the Greater Palm Springs Pride festival and parade.
This year the festival moved back on Palm Canyon Drive between Amado and Ramon, as well as several side streets, including Arenas Road where all the gay bars are. (Last year it had been off the main drag, which made the various venues feel separated.)
As usual, Bob and I went early to claim prime viewing spots and precious nearby parking. We barely made it! There was only one spot left when we arrived, and I beat out another Prius that hesitated a half-second too long to pull into the spot. Ya snooze, ya lose!
It turned out to be an absolutely lovely day, and we had a great time. Poor Réal, he had to work.
