A Little Light Entertainment

A world record attempt, ice skating, and a proper fireworks display highlight this annual event


Published:

Festival of Lights

This is your last chance to see 3.6 million twinkle lights at the Mission Inn Hotel & Spa’s Festival of Lights, through January 5. It’s also just a good excuse to visit the Mission Inn—a national landmark, located in Riverside—where Bette Davis and Richard Nixon were married (but not to each other), and where the Reagans honeymooned. (Yes! In Riverside!) The 20th annual light celebration also includes actual snow, a pop-up ice skating rink, and horse-drawn carriage rides. And stay tuned for news of a Guinness World Record, as a 12-by-8-foot illuminated mistletoe now hangs in the entry. festivaloflightsca.com
