Make Saturday morning October 24 a family affair and head into the heart of town. Find a spot along Palm Canyon Drive or on the Circle and settle in to witness the excitement of the Borrego Days Parade that opens at 10 AM with a spectacular multi-plane flyover. Dance along with marching bands as competing schools from San Diego, Imperial and Riverside counties play to win first place, watch in awe as Spanish, trick and western reenactment equestrian groups mount up and take the parade route, and be carefree alongside with the comical clowns and funny cars. Admire the beauty of the classic cars as they roll through town and wave enthusiastically to catch the eye of the queens and their courts, people on the floats and tricked out golf carts.

As the parade wraps up, the party really gets started at the Circle. Wander through the rows of booths and enjoy the talented artists, variety of one-of-a-kind goods, refreshing cold brews and frozen concoctions in the beverage garden, and a plethora of food that smells so good you'll have to try some from each gourmet food truck and festival food booth! All the while being fueled on by the main stage entertainment and nonstop live music featuring Alice Wallace, the Marine Corps Jazz Band, Mariachi Estrella, Lucky Tongue and other greats that will keep you dancing late into the night. The children will be delighted with all the special activities in store for them in the carnival fun zone! This year our attendees will have the opportunity to walk on water with Wow Bubbles, a giant interactive inflatable bubble that will allow young and young at heart to safely walk on water while having the time of their lives!
