Though you wouldn't think of the Old West as a place to find a traditional treat of the Middle East, the Yuma area is the world's largest producer of gourmet Medjool dates long known as the fruit of kings. That's why this town on the banks of the Colorado River is busy making plans for its first ever Yuma Medjool Date Festival from 8a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 17 in historic downtown Yuma.

For more information check out the Yuma Medjool Date Festival Website.
