The World Famous Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade originated in the early 60s, put together by several individuals who just wanted to have fun. Production was “iffy” depending upon whether a chairman could be found for that year or not. The parade wasn’t an every year event until 1983.

In the early days, it was “Christmas in July” for the benefit of local residents who found the summers boring. The FireCliff Lodge served up turkey dinners and the carts were all decorated for Christmas.

Now of course, the parade is in October, with 15,000 to 30,000 spectators.

And believe it or not, organizers field questions about the parade from media around the world! Recent requests for information have come from the Philippines, France, Germany and Japan.
