For the next couple of weeks, Twentynine Palms will be busy hosting activities related to its annual Pioneer Days celebration.

The celebration which began with a kick of on Oct. 6 will continue this weekend and culminate in four days of fun Thursday through Sunday, Oct. 18 to 21 with activities that will include the old timers reunion at the Old Schoolhouse Museum, the Pioneer Days carnival at Luckie Park, the Pioneer Days chili dinner at the 29 Palms Art Gallery and the Pioneer Days Parade on Twentynine Palms Highway and Adobe Road.

Pioneer Days is not just for the people, it’s a chance for the people of Twentynine Palms to invite their neighbors from across the Basin to come enjoy some Twentynine Palms hospitality and learn more about this anchor of Morongo Basin life, history and culture.

Just as Grubstake Days in Yucca Valley and the Orchid Fest in Landers are good excuses for residents from all over the Basin to get together and celebrate our common pioneer heritage, Pioneer Days is a good reason to trek to Twentynine Palms and celebrate this region’s rich past, present and future.

We would like to see everyone who can make the trip east to take part in Pioneer Days fun and then to stay an enjoy some of the city’s fine restaurants and shops.

We urge Twentynine Palms residents to make our guests feel welcome and to invite them back for Small Business Saturday or to do their Christmas shopping or to attend events at the Old Schoolhouse Museum, the weed show is on its way, the 29 Palms Art Gallery, the Sky’s the Limit Observatory or Theatre 29.
