The Cathedral City High School Homecoming Parade and Rally returns to Downtown Cathedral City on Thursday, October 14th from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm. The parade route will mirror the route used last time in 2019 where it starts south of Perez Road on Cathedral Canyon Drive and continues south to Avenida Lalo Guerrero and turns left. Once on Avenida Lalo Guerrero, the parade will end in front of City Hall for the Rally.
Over the years, the parade has featured football team, marching band, cheer leaders, students nominated for Homecoming King and Queen, various honor groups, elected officials, middle and elementary school students, and more.
Attendees should park in the City’s Parking Garage by entering from the east on Officer David Vasquez Road behind City Hall. From the parking garage, you will be steps from the parade route and rally.
Due to the parade, motorists should be aware that Avenida Lalo Guerrero and Cathedral Canyon Drive between East Palm Canyon Drive (HWY 111) and Perez Road will be closed for safety from 3:00 pm to approximately 5:30 pm. Both East Palm Canyon Drive and Perez Road will remain open to traffic during the parade. Customers wanting to access businesses along the parade route will need to use secondary streets or be prepared to travel a moderate distance from their car to the business.
Current City COVID-19 restrictions require anyone outdoors who cannot safely socially distance from anyone outside of their household should wear a facial covering to help prevent spreading the coronavirus.
