DFA Pride Parade Contingent

DFA Parade Banner

Come on out and march with DFA and other local fetish/affiliate groups (PSLOD, FetishMenSanDiego, Desire, Bears of Coachella Valley, and The Barracks) in this year’s Palm Springs Pride Parade.

The parade will step off at 10 am on Sunday, November 3 from Baristo and Palm Canyon Drive. Once we receive our contingency number we will have a clearer idea of where we’ll be in the lineup and when we will be stepping off. We should meet around 9/9:30 between Sunny Dunes and Baristo to have enough time to take pictures and mingle. Mark your calendars and let’s show the community our fetish/kink spirit!

Important! The Palm Springs City Ordinance prohibiting public nudity open to view will be strictly enforced. That means no frontal nudity, jockstraps or chaps showing your bare ass are allowed.
