4th of July Stuff to Do

The Coachella Valley is a lively place.  For the 4th of July I thought I would highlight some fun things to do.  They all can be done with or without grandchildren.  I have included a few things that are not 4th related but fun to do on a long weekend.

 

TUESDAY, JULY 3

Fantasy Springs Resort Casino | Indio
The Cabazon Band of Mission Indians hosts the annual fireworks display starting at 8:45 p.m. at its Eagle Springs Golf Course next to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.

Park in the gravel lot closest to the course’s Pro Shop.

It’s a yearly tradition in Palm Springs: a PS Power baseball game followed by a City-sponsored Fireworks Display after the game. The game starts at 6:05 p.m., with fireworks at 9:15 p.m. The ball park opens at 8 p.m. for free viewing of the fireworks. The ball field is in Sunrise Park so if you’re not into baseball, hot dogs, peanuts and beverages, try a picnic in the park. But get there early—parking can be tight around the park.

Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa 4thAnnual Fireworks Spectacular | Rancho Mirage
Celebrate Independence Day in Rancho Mirage. Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa is hosting its fourth annual fireworks display on July 4. A spectacular patriotic celebration for all to enjoy, watch as an enormous firework display lights up the night sky starting at approximately 9:00 p.m. Admission and parking are free. Enjoy the fireworks display synchronized to music on The Eagle 106.9.

Civic Center Park | Palm Desert
Bring your own seating (low lawn chairs or a blanket), a picnic dinner or check out what the vendors (food trucks) have to offer in food and beverages (no alcohol, sorry), and join in the Fourth of July fun at Civic Center Park in Palm Desert. The night starts at 7:15 p.m. with the National Anthem, followed by a concert by the Swing Cats Big Band. The 25-minute firework display starts at 9 p.m., with patriot and contemporary music.

Palm Springs Aerial Tramway | Palm Springs

It’s a chance to commune with nature and pay homage to the wild roots of our nation. If you decide to stay on the mountain, don’t count on seeing the fireworks. The Mountain Station is at 8,500 feet elevation and most fireworks explode at about 250 feet, officials say.  Oh, and the temps are about 25 – 35 degrees less than the valley.

Vista Point, Highway 74 | Palm Desert
This lookout is a favorite place to see fireworks from Palm Desert and Coachella. It’s high up and you might only see specks of colored lights, but the sweeping views of the oasis more than make up for it.

The Gardens on El Paseo | Palm Desert
The Gardens on El Paseo may be the best place to see the Palm Desert fireworks—if you can get a reservation for patio seating at one of the second-floor restaurants (Tommy Bahama’sWilma and Frieda’sPacifica Seafood RestaurantSammy’s Woodfired Pizza and Sullivan’s Steakhouse), or don’t mind hanging out.

Habitat for Humanity to Dedicate Veteran Home in Indio

In partnership with the City of Indio and Home Depot Foundation

Indio, CA, 2018—On Thursday, June 28 at 8:00 AM, Habitat for Humanity of the Coachella Valley will dedicate the first of two new homes being built in the City of Indio for a veteran family. This home, at 82063 Mountain View Avenue in a neighborhood just east of Monroe Street and north of Avenue 44, is the result of a partnership between the City of Indio, Habitat for Humanity and The Home Depot Foundation.

The new homeowners are John Paul Hitchcock, Jr., a veteran who served in the U.S. Navy for five years, and his wife, Amber Nicole Hitchcock. John is a disabled veteran, a fulltime student and an employee at College of the Desert. John, Amber, and their two young sons are very excited to be recipients of one of Habitat’s Indio Veteran Build Homes. He stated that it is very humbling and an honor to be a part of this great mission and in the process provide his family a place to call home! John, Amber and their children will be present at the dedication.

The second new home build is located at 82155 Orange Grove. Both homes have been made possible through the generous financial support of the City of Indio’s HUD Funded Neighborhood Stabilization Program 2 (NSP2) and The Home Depot Foundation. The City’s involvement demonstrates its strong commitment to developing affordable housing and assisting families achieve home ownership.

Habitat for Humanity has been building and renovating homes in the Coachella Valley since 1989 and have built thirty-five houses in that period in various communities. In 2017- 18 alone, Habitat has placed five low-income families in homes in La Quinta and Palm Desert.

In addition to building the two new homes, more than 11 existing homes in the neighborhood received repairs and beautification by teams of volunteers through Habitat’s A Brush with Kindness program (ABWK). In total, over 350 volunteers contributed more than 1,000 hours by painting, repairing fences, installing water saving landscaping and removing brush and debris from yards.
