Starting Friday, the lights turn on at the Festival of Lights at the historic Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in downtown Riverside, CA. Featuring nearly 4 million lights (that’s right, million), the display is one of the nation’s largest light collections.

Now in its 21st year, the Festival of Lights is free and open to the public every day from Friday, November 29 until Saturday, January 4. Stop by this Inland Empire winter wonderland and kick off the holiday season!
