“Fun on a Thursday Night”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This was first night we were in Palm Springs, it was fun to walk up and down the streets and decide where we would eat the rest of the time, while taking in all the local arts and crafts and food.

“Awesome”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Must see if you are in Palm Springs. Don't bother with dinner on this night just eat at the many places available serving fresh food along this market like street fest. Highly recommended.

“Fun and Free Thursday Evening.......”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

As noted by a previous reviewer the parking is hit and miss at best. However this was a fun night for our group who ranged in ages from 13 to 56. The food was good with lots of selection. Good atmosphere with lots of people,and since everyone is a tourist they are all in good spirits. We probably spent about 2 1/2 hours there and saw pretty much all there was to see. Lots of walking involved and not too many places to sit down,unless you stop in at a restaurant .

“Meals to eat on street”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

It's every thursday. South Canyon street is closed and merchants, most of them restaurants, show their stuff. Singers are good; people are so & so. Parking is a mess. I tried to have a nice table at LULU, but the staff is so highfalutin (en français, on dirait qu'ils sont chiants!).

A tried group of new age carneys selling their wares in the sunny desert. Pretty good food carts though.
