Every year, thousands of people throughout Southern California visit the Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in Downtown Riverside for the annual Festival of Lights. The holiday extravaganza switches its lights on this Friday, November 23, 2018 for a free, six-week-long run featuring one of the largest light spectacles in the country.
Residents from the San Bernardino Valley may experience the beloved tradition and avoid traffic and parking fees by riding Omnitrans Freeway Express Route 215 to Downtown Riverside’s Metrolink Station. There, a free shuttle awaits courtesy of Riverside Transit Agency (RTA), which will give you a lift to the festival every 15 minutes on Fridays and Saturdays between 3 p.m. and 10 p.m.
