For the second year in a row, local radio personality (and Patch blogger) Françoise Rhodes will emcee the Borrego Days Desert Festival Parade.
"I have such a wonderful time at this event and for a small town, they create a big event," Rhodes said.
The parade includes antique cars, horses, celebrities, parade floats and dignitaries. The parade is also the kick off event for a weekend of entertainment, vendors, food, kid zones and parties celebrating Borrego Springs. The majority of the weekend celebration takes place at Christmas Circle, the center of town.
The Borrego Days Desert Festival runs October 27 & 28. Borrego Springs is about a 90 minute drive from Palm Springs and surrounded by the Anza Borrego State Park.
Rhodes will also be broadcasting her radio show 'Traveling With Françoise' live on Sunday, October 28, from Christmas Circle. The show can be heard from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. streaming live via www.moneyradio1200.com or www.travelingwithfrancoise.com .
