The 69th annual Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival Parade took place Monday morning on the streets of Indio. Organizers are honored to have LA Kings very own Luc Robitaille serving as Grand Marshall of the festival, which takes place February 13-22.
Robitaille invited the public to join in the fun for the Presidents Day Parade that began at 9 a.m. at the intersection of Miles Avenue and Deglet Noor Street.
Luc Robitaille is undoubtedly one of the greatest and most popular players to ever lace up a pair of hockey skates. The one time LA Kings captain won a Stanley Cup with the Detroit Red Wings before returning to the Kings where he finished out his career in 2006 as the highest scoring left winger in NHL history and the all-time Kings leader in goals scored.
Inducted into Hockey’s Hall of Fame in 2009, Robitaille became the president of business operations for the LA Kings where he was an integral part of the management team that in 2012 brought the Kings their first Stanley Cup in franchise history and again in 2014.
Gates at the 69th annual Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival are open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. General admission is $9 for adults, $8 for seniors, $7 for youth, $6 for group bus tours and free for children 5-years-old and younger.
