90th Annual Palm Springs Fire Association Fish Fry returns to Ruth Hardy Park

Palm Springs Fire Association Fish Fry ReturnsPALM SPRINGS — For nine decades, the Palm Springs Fire Association Fish Fry has brought neighbors and the community together over a plate of trout. This year will be no different.

The Palm Springs Firefighters Association encourages the community to join them for their 90th Annual Fish Fry on Saturday, June 3, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Ruth Hardy Park, 700 Tamarisk Road.

The popular annual event features delicious rainbow trout, corn on the cob, coleslaw and cold beverages, along with live music and dancing through the night. Dinner will be served until 10 p.m. Residents who do not eat fish will be served a burger or hot dog.

Admission is $10 per person.

“The Palm Springs Fire Association’s annual Fish Fry is a wonderful tradition going back 90 years that residents and firefighters alike look forward to every year,” Fire Chief Paul Alvarado said in a statement. “It’s also a fantastic way to get to know your neighborhood firefighters while enjoying delicious fried fish made especially for the community we serve. Bring the whole family and enjoy.”

Community action in Palm Springs has long been a source of getting resources and making friends. Back in the 1930s, local business owners held a fish fry to raise funds for the volunteer Palm Springs Fire Department. The result was the city’s first fire truck and a community event that would last for decades to come.
