It’s that time of year again when California’s Coachella Valley says goodbye to the tens of thousands of people who call our Valley their second home: Snowbirds, as they’re called, are heading off.

“We’re getting ready to go home so it’s very hectic and very busy right now,” said Marianne Thomsen, a Canadian visitor.

The Thomsens are about to join thousands of others who have already left the Coachella Valley. The couple heads back home to Canada on Friday.
