Fodor's Review

Indio celebrates its raison d'être each February at this festival and county fair. The mid-month festivities include an Arabian Nights pageant, camel and ostrich races, and exhibits of local dates, plus monster truck shows, a demolition derby, a nightly musical pageant, and a rodeo. Admission includes camel rides.
