In Palm Springs’ Golden Era of the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, America’s favorite celebrities came together to present remarkable shows for sell-out crowds in Palm Springs.Celebrities such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Dinah Shore graced the stage before thousands of enthused participants.

Bob Hope sent the crowd into laughter-induced tears and Red Skelton conjured facial expressions only he could.These performances, dubbed the Palm Springs Police Shows, raised funds for local law enforcement related charities and gained nationwide publicity for Palm Springs.

On Jan. 13, the Palm Springs Historical Society is hosting a lecture and slide show featuring hundreds of photographs of the Police Shows taken by local photographers Fred Weigel and George Aquino.

The event starts at 6 p.m. at the Los Compadres Clubhouse, 1849 El Cielo Road. A no-host bar will be available.

Admission is $25 for historical society members; $30 for non members.Seating is limited and reservations required by calling (760) 323-8297.

All proceeds benefit the Palm Springs Historical Society, a nonprofit serving the community since 1955.
