After a two-year hiatus, come join in a celebration of our 50 Palm Springs neigborhoods and the many wonderful things that make our city like no place else, when the Organized Neighborhoods of Palm Springs, (ONE-PS), host their 13th Annual Picnic & Community Expo on Saturday, March 19 in Ruth Hardy Park.

The picnic, slated from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. features a FREE lunch for residents from three popular Palm Springs eateries along with great music and a myriad of informational booths highlighting local businesses, City services, Commissions, and local neighborhood organizations.

This year’s picnic will honor City of Palm Springs employees for their commitment and dedication to our community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event will also include free balloon rides starting at 10 am, weather permitting, face painting and children’s activities brought to you by Palm Springs Parks and Recreation and an always wildly popular pooch costume contest. Categories include “Cutest,” “Most Original,” and “Funniest.” 

In addition, Palm Springs Police Chief Andy Mills plans to challenge attendees to to a competitive game of “cornhole” at the Palm Springs Police booth.

“For the past 17 years, our ONE-PS neighborhood organizations have tirelessly worked with City Hall to improve the quality of life for the residents of Palm Springs,” said Mayor Lisa Middleton. “The annual picnic and expo is a perfect example of how our hard working and inclusive neighborhood organizations work together to engage and educate residents about what is happening in our city. It’s also one of the best ways I have found to meet new people and get involved while having a very good time.”

ONE-PS and the City of Palm Springs would like to thank the picnic and expo’s many sponsors for their generous support. For more information, visit www.one-ps.org.
