On Thursday, Palm Canyon drive is closed to the traffic and transformed into a giant street fair.
Most stalls are alike: cheap-looking jewels, candles, stones, scarfs, cds from local singers, chocolate and other candy...
Most things are handcrafted.
There are also a few Indian stalls and some local farmers sell nuts and fresh fruit.
Local custom, but also a Tourist trap!
Location: North Palm Canyon Dr. From Baristo Road to Amado Rd.
When? Every Thursday evening except holidays 6 - 10 pm October through May, 7-10 pm June through September.
Almost all of the employees in places you visit or dine get by on tips. They have a lot of well heeled customers who are tightwads when it comes to tipping. If you ask them a few personal questions and let them know you are an average person they don't expect a big tip but when you do give them one they will treat you like royalty on your return. Now this this is true almost anywhere else also but it is really apparent here. They appreciate it more than resort people in other places because the ratio of rich to average is much greater here than at almost any other resort area in the world.
