Palm Springs - Green Friday, June 2, 2006
Founders of Green Friday are planning a Hybrid Parade through downtown Palm Springs at noon. Local hybrid owners will be gathering at the Palm Springs visitors center north of downtown. Coincidentally, the visitors center was originally a gas station and designed by the famous architect Albert Frey.
The event begins at 11:30 at the visitors center pavillion and the parade begins at noon. Hybrid drivers with headlights on will proceed down Hwy 111 (Palm Canyon Drive) to Ramon Road, turn left to N. Indian Canyon Drive and proceed north on Indian Canyon and left on Alejo to proceed one last loop through downtown returning back up N. Indian Canyon Drive to enjoy snacks at the visitors center.
Hybrid drivers unable to be at the event, as well as hybrid drivers in other cities are asked to drive with their lights on from noon to 12:30 on Green Friday, June 2nd. As usual, everyone is asked to show their support by wearing a green.
