Palm Springs VillageFest Extends Its Hours.
VillageFest, the weekly street fair in beautiful downtown Palm Springs, just began its fall hours last Thursday. Located along Palm Canyon Drive between Baristo and Amado Roads, this very popular street celebration will now take place from 6 to 10 p.m. every Thursday evening.
Palm Springs VillageFest, organized more than 20 years ago, is an event to be enjoyed by kids of all ages. It features more than 200 booths with art, handcrafted items, music and lots and lots of food. Many shops, galleries and restaurants also stay open late on Thursday evenings. Special events at VillageFest already planned for this season include the annual “Halloween Spook-tacular” on Oct. 27 featuring trick-or-treating, a pumpkin patch, and a children’s costume contest.
