“Forever Marilyn” is about to say farewell to
Palm Springs. The 26 foot 17 ton statue has been visiting here
for almost 2 years and has been enjoyed by thousands of visitors, most of who have posed to have their photo taken with her.
Marilyn Monroe is still a big draw even as a statue.

The Palm Springs Follies has been a great part of the city for 23 years now but it too is leaving. In this case it is not going elsewhere but is closing down due to the economy incline that has affected live theater all over the country. This is the last year for these performances, it really is “The Last Hurrah”. We’ve seen it several times over the years and have enjoyed every show, the Follies will be greatly missed.
Marilyn is leaving, the Follies are closing and our stay in the desert has come to an end, too…… lots of good-byes! Some of us will return but only time will tell which ones.
