Trips and Tours

December 19, 2018 - Mission Inn, Riverside
Enjoy lunch at the extravagantly decorated Mission Inn


The historic Mission Inn in Riverside has recently kicked off the holiday season with an
extravaganza featuring one of the nation’s largest holiday light collections of its kind.
This Festival of Lights, now in its 26th year, is the Mission Inn’s gift to the community.
Highlights of the Festival of Lights include 200 animated figures including angels, elves
and Dickens characters, appearances of Santa Claus, the world’s largest man-made
mistletoe, horse-drawn carriage rides, freshly fallen snow, and elaborately decorated
Christmas trees.
A new addition this year is the North Pole walkway that will take you down the main
walkway, full of Santa’s elves playing in the snow, Santa’s workshop with brightly
colored canopy lights, elves filling Santa’s sled with toys, and a life-sized gingerbread house.

No trips are planned for January
