    For those new to Parade, the road trip is as much fun as the destination.

    I have driven my various Porsches back and forth from Calgary to the Coachella valley many times and never had problems with the security for my cars. It will be warm and so you can use a sun screen to cover the font window when parking outside. It keeps some of the heat down inside the car. It does cool off in the desert in the evenings. Expect nightly lows in the low 70s after the sun goes down.

    December 2019 Panorama has an article at page 99 on the 65th Parade in Palm Springs.

    Key dates to remember:

    - Phase 1 registration (basic Parade registration, can book hotel) opens Tuesday January 28, 12 noon EST.

    - Phase 2 is for banquets, events and tours and begins March 31, 12 noon EST.

    - Registration closes May 31 11:59 pm EST.

    I understand Parade in California generally gets a good turnout so you can expect a lot of cool cars, fun PCA folks and a good time.

    There are some 140 or so golf courses in the valley, lots of very good restaurants and lots to do. The shopping and restaurants on el Paseo are fun. If you need any tips on things to do or places to see, let Christina or I know.

    Best regards, Martin

    Hi. Thanks for the input and answers to my questions earlier in the thread.

    I registered today as well as booked a 1 bedroom villa with kitchen at the resort. Not as expensive as I thought, actually. I'll drive down, my wife Darlene will fly down and join me for the week and fly back. I'm going to drive east a bit on the historic route 66 and come home the long way. Look forward to standing on the corner in Winslow Arizona.....

    Since this is my first Parade I'm looking forward to the descriptions of the events. Any recommendations of things to "for sure" register for? Thanks in advance.

    I was fortunate to join the 2020 PCA Region 14 Presidents for their dinner at the Adobe Grill in the site of the La Quinta Resort. This resort will host the 2020 Parade. It was good to see other Wild Rose members there and to connect with other PCA friends in Region 14 Thanks to Yvette for the invite. Best regards, Martin
