Riverside’s Festival of Lights

Riverside

On Friday, November 23, Riverside kicked off the holiday season with the grand “switch-on” of the 26th Annual Festival of Lights. The free, six-week long light spectacular is one of the largest holiday light collections of its kind in the nation.  The festival is a yearly gift to the community from the owners of the downtown Mission Inn, Duane and Kelly Roberts, who saved the historic hotel from destruction in 1992.

The light display attracts nearly 500,000 visitors each year from all over the world. The opening event featured 5 million holiday lights, 200 animated features, fireworks, horse drawn carriage rides, elf tuck-ins, fresh snow, elaborately decorated Christmas trees and many other festival surprises.  

The festival in downtown Riverside will continue through January 6, 2019.
