Seniors invited to tour Festival of Lights at Mission Inn December 8


The Canyon Lake Senior Work Group has arranged a trip for seniors (50 years and older) to enjoy the Festival of Lights at the Mission Inn in Riverside December 8.

Organizers say, “The Festival of Lights has to be seen to be believed. In fact, it should be on everyone’s bucket list. Many Christmas-related activities and street vendors are just outside the Mission Inn. For example, you can ice skate, shop for unusual Christmas decorations, or ride in a fairy tale-like horse drawn carriage.”

Held every Christmas season at the Mission Inn in Riverside , this internationally recognized event has been rated by USA Today’s as the “Number 1 Best Public Lights Display” and by People Magazine as the second best Christmas light show in the United States.

A coach will depart from the Lodge on Thursday, December 8, at 4 p.m., for a five hour round trip to the Festive of Lights. The cost is $25 per person. Dinner at any of the nearby restaurants is on  one’s own. Reservations are taken at the POA office. Only checks made out to the Canyon Lake Senior Work Group will be accepted.
