27th Annual Festival of Lights in Riverside
Your family will be swept away by more than five million brilliant lights transforming Riverside’s historic hotel into magic.
In addition to the external light display, throughout the season The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa features a decorated Christmas tree, appearances by Santa Claus and Dickensian Carolers singing cheerful holiday tunes, authentic horse-drawn carriages, live reindeer, and hundreds of characters dressed in 17th Century costumes to entertain crowds and evoke the spirit of the season.
The North Pole walkway will take you down the main walkway, filled with Santa’s elves playing in the snow, a snow-covered Campanario with the world’s largest mistletoe, and down the path towards Main Street featuring Santa’s Workshop with brightly colored canopy lights, elves filling Santa’s sled full of Toys, life-size Gingerbread House, window displays and more!
