Good morning, Coachella Valley! Here are five things to know for today:

Acrobatics: The Peking Acrobats are performing at the McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert. The group has “redefined the perceptions of Chinese acrobatics” since 1986, the venue’s website says. The show starts at 7 p.m., and tickets range from $15-$45.

Just the start: OutKast’s 20th anniversary reunion at Coachella is just the beginning. In addition to the Indio festival, the duo is performing more than 40 shows in 2014.

Nature series: Naturalist and ecologist Ginny Short will be at the Palm Springs Public Library to share the natural history of the burrowing owl. The free lecture starts at 6:30 p.m.

By the numbers: In Imperial County, 43.6 percent of children are considered food-insecure, meaning they don’t know where their next meal will come from. That’s the second highest rate in the nation.

Political polls: In a Congressional match between a generic Democrat and Republican, the Democrat would lead 41% to 37%, according to a Rasmussen survey of likely voters.
