Festival of Lights

mission-innI’m always looking for free things to do around the holidays and this weekend is a great one if you live in the Riverside area. The Festival of LIghts begins Friday night with the lighting up of the Mission Inn.

Every evening from November 28 to January 4, festival goers can enjoy holiday decorations with more than three million twinkling lights along Mission Inn Avenue, ice skating under the stars, horse-drawn carriage rides, live entertainment and of course, Santa Claus.

The Festival takes place in Downtown Riverside on the Main Street Pedestrian Mall where visitors can find a variety of options for dining and unique shopping.

It also features holiday-themed vendors every night, offering specialty food and gift items. Come experience the Festival. Have dinner, shop and enjoy the holiday fun.

So If you are in the area have a fun, free, family evening enjoying the sights and sounds of Christmas.
