The first weekend in December, in 2009 this means December 5-6, always brings a Unique event to the valley. Since 1992 the City of Indio has hosted the Indio International Tamale Festival. If you have never tried Tamales this woud be the perfect time to try one. Did you know that they even make sweet tamales? I did not learn that until I moved to the Palm Springs area in the 90’s. Trust me they are delicious.
Part food festival, part carnival, part state fair this great event has something for everyone. rides, games, live entertainment, a Parade and of course the food! The Guinness Record holder for largest Tamale and biggest tamale festival the event is covered by national media and is great fun for all.
