What a sight to see! The Festival of Lights in downtown Riverside, California! The Mission Inn, a historical hotel dating from the late 1800's is the hub of the festival. It is covered with over 3.6 million lights and it is spectacular!
Along the downtown mall all the store windows are filled with glittering lights and fanciful decorations. Loads of bling! One even has an up-side-down tree! There are outdoor cafes and booths with cupcakes (Casey's was a winner of Cupcake Wars on Food Network), hot chocolate, caramel corn and salt water taffy. There is even a reindeer to feed, live music and a skating rink with skaters galore! It was really quite fun! If you live anywhere near, you really should go! Here are some pictures of our evening adventure.
In the spirit of the Festival of Lights, Cindy
