The Festival of Lights at the Mission Inn Hotel features one of the nation’s largest holiday light collections of its kind. It starts with a celebratory “flipping of the switch” ceremony – in which the castle-like, historic hotel is instantly illuminated with nearly 4 million holiday lights and is followed by a full fireworks display. Castle? Fireworks? That’s a lighting that kids can really get behind. There are also visits from Santa Claus, the world’s largest man made mistletoe, horse-drawn carriage rides, freshly fallen snow, an elaborately decorated Christmas tree in the hotel lobby and delectable holiday confections at the original famous Casey’s Cupcakes located at the Inn.
If you can’t make it for the flipping of the switch itself, don’t worry – the lights go on nightly through January 4.
