The City of Palm Springs is excited to announce a grand opening ribbon-cutting and community celebration of its new Downtown Park on Thursday, October 21st.

The event begins at 5:30 pm, just prior to VillageFest, with opening remarks from the City Council, Nona Watson, CEO of the Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce, park designer Mark Rios and his team from the Los Angeles-based design firm RIOS, officials from Fast Track Construction, the chairs of the Measure J and Parks and Recreation commissions, and other local officials.

In addition, the Chamber of Commerce will host a free mini-Taste of Palm Springs with local restaurants in the park beginning at 5:30 p.m. followed by a ghoulishly original 6 p.m. Halloween pooch costume contest on the new event stage, presented by the Palm Springs Animal Shelter. Categories include: Funniest, Most Creative and Best Overall. Bring your four-legged friend to the park by 5:30 p.m. to register.

The celebration is set to take off into the stratosphere at 6:30 p.m. with a spectacular two- hour free tribute concert celebrating the tunes of legendary Swedish pop band ABBA, performed by the well known tribute artist band ABBAFab.
