The Desert Sun’s Sherry Barkas writes that the 52nd Annual Palm Desert Golf Cart Parade starts at noon on Sunday Oct. 3oth,, with soap opera star John Callahan as Grand Marshal. Grand Marshal Callahan is best known for his longtime portrayal of Edmund Grey in “All My Children.”This year’s theme is  “Golf Carts, Ghosts & Glitter,” More than 25,000 people are expected to line El Paseo on Sunday to take in the 92 whimsically decorated golf cart entries as well as local bands, dance teams and other entries.

While the parade starts at noon, there are a variety of other activities taking place throughout the morning, including:

  • The annual Palm Desert Rotary pancake breakfast at 7:30 a.m. at the corner of San Luis Rey and El Paseo;
  • The Golf Cart Show starting at 9 a.m; and
  • Food vendors and the children’s area with games, crafts, face-painting, bounce house and more opening from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
