Festival of Lights Pre-Switch-On Activities

Join us in front of the art museum starting at noon as we celebrate the holidays with fun art activities for all ages in anticipation of The Mission Inn’s Festival of Lights Switch-On Ceremony at 4:30 p.m.

The Festival of Lights is a five-week holiday merriment featuring one of the nation’s largest array of dazzling lights collections of its kind.

Now in its 22nd year, The Mission Inn’s Festival of Lights is an annual gift to the community from property owners Duane and Kelly Roberts who saved the historic landmark from destruction in 1992. A beloved Southern California tradition and a not-to-be-missed holiday extravaganza, The Mission Inn’s Festival of Lights commences with a celebratory Switch-On Ceremony – in which the castle-like, historic hotel is instantly illuminated with more than 4 million holiday lights followed by a full fireworks display – and continues through January 6, 2015.
