The anticipation is almost palpable in Cathedral City, as many of the projects initiated in recent years are taking shape. What were once mere glimmers of ideas are now meeting hammer and nail, mortar and brick. Cathedral City is watching its plans rise with the same awe typically reserved for balloon launches during its annual Hot Air Balloon Festival. It’s an exciting period of growth.
The City’s new $4.5 million-dollar amphitheater is rising out of the ground and it promises to be a showstopper. The development will feature an outdoor stage, a concession stand, a children’s play area, and walking paths. With a seating capacity for 2,900 plus people. The amphitheater park will serve as an ideal venue for the city’s events and festivals. The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians prepare to break ground on a new gaming and entertainment development. Its centerpiece will be a 65,000 square foot casino complemented by restaurants, bars, retail and mixed use space.
Home building continues its upward trend in Cathedral City. Hot on the heels of The District at the Edge’s sold out success comes another community from the same developer. The new District East will feature 45 one and two story single family homes designed with an urban twist.
Several festivals organized by the city never fail to delight residents and visitors alike. Beginning with the Taste of Jalisco, Snow Fest, Tejano Music, and Big League Dreams, the world’s largest food truck rally in October. The Hot Air Balloon Festival is everyone’s favorite. Watch this fair city’s dreams come to fruition.
