Palm Springs Colors

Inspired by memorable lightings around the country during COVID, two Palm Springs residents have taken the idea to heart – and to home.

Begun on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2021, Alfredo Casuso & David Perry light up the LED powered palm trees in front of their Los Compadres home in ever changing rainbow hues to mark important days in history, national commemorations honoring nonprofits and charities and other significant dates.

It’s an idea they hope will grow and get picked up and magnified at a community and official level.
