The City Council of Cathedral City approved a gift in the amount of $50,000 from Grizzly Entertainment for a drone light show at the Cathedral City Hot Air Balloon Festival. The unanimous vote took place at the regular meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2022.

The 200-drone unit light show will be featured at the Cathedral City Hot Air Balloon Festival during the evening on Friday, Nov. 18, 2022. The purpose of the donation is for the benefit of the public’s entertainment and to enhance the quality of programming for the Cathedral City Hot Air Balloon Festival.
