Mission Inn Festival of Lights Riverside California
Over 5 Million Lights and 400 Animated Figures
“The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa will once again host its Festival of Lights this year and has made the difficult decision to cancel the traditional Switch-On Ceremony because of concerns about the potential COVID-19 public health impacts associated with the Delta Variant. The City of Riverside also has reduced its usual programming this year to ensure the public’s safety.
“The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa will sparkle with millions of lights and decorations, continuing a holiday tradition that has delighted Riverside for decades and drawn visitors from around the globe.
“Festival of Lights has been recognized as one of the nation’s most popular holiday events, enchanting visitors of all ages with the Mission Inn’s décor and festivities surrounded by the charm of Riverside’s historic Downtown. As a result, this year’s Festival of Lights will largely mirror the 2020 event, which was the first to be scaled back due to COVID-19.”
