Riverside Festival of Lights

November 26, 2010 ·

Hundreds of poinsettias line the front walkway into the festive Mission Inn Hotel & Spa

Tonight, come join us for the 18th annual Festival of Lights experience in downtown Riverside.  With more than three and a half million twinkling lights, the Riverside Festival of Lights presented by the Mission Inn Hotel & Spa is the most dazzling outdoor holiday light spectacle south of the North Pole.  It all begins with the flip of a switch tonight, Friday November 26th, 2010, during the “Switch-On Ceremony” presented by Duane and Kelly Roberts, owners of the Mission Inn Hotel & Spa.

At 6:15 p.m., in one swift move, Riverside’s downtown is instantly illuminated with millions of lights and spectacular fireworks!  After eating Thanksgiving leftovers, a large group of us will bundle up and walk about a mile from our houses to the Mission Inn, as we’ve done for many years.  We’ll be contributing not only to pollution-free transportation, but we’ll be exercising off the pumpkin and apple pies!  Hope to see you at the Festival of Lights!

Happy Holidays!
