A horse died during the Date Festival parade


Monday’s annual Date Festival parade in Indio sounds like it was a bit of a bummer after one of the horses participating in the event died during the festivities.

An Indio Police Department spokesman told KESQ that the horse had either a “major heart attack or stroke” and that officers screened off the scene to “ease the drama” for those watching.

It still sounds like it was pretty traumatic for those in attendance.

RIP, horse.
