Turkey Day 5K
Thanksgiving is a holiday that we always regret after we gorge ourselves on the delicious food at the table. Feel a little better about what you eat by participating in the annual Turkey Day 5K. This annual race kicks off Thanksgiving morning and benefits Martha’s Village and Kitchen. Participants are encouraged to walk, jog, or run for any length of the race. Casual racers can go as fast or slow as they want. Competitive racers will be encouraged to try their best for prizes offered across multiple age categories.
Visit Mt. San Jacinto
One of the most popular attractions in Palm Springs is Mt. San Jacinto, which can be found right outside of town.
