Each February, the Coachella Valley becomes a hot spot for entertaining and even dating. The annual Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival features lots of unique entertainment, special events, and culinary experiences. Here you can witness camel and ostrich races. It is hard to guess the result of the race, as these animals are quite unpredictable, and this fact makes them even more exciting to the public.
