The 26th Annual Festival of Lights has returned to The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in Riverside and this is the final weekend to take Metrolink special service to the event.festival-of-lights---slider3.jpg

The Festival of Lights is a FREE Southern California holiday tradition with more than 4.5 million dazzling lights, over 400 animated figures, Dickens carolers, the world’s largest manmade mistletoe, horse-drawn carriage rides, live entertainment, many specialty food vendors and Santa Claus.

Last year, more than 11,000 Southern Californians chose to take Metrolink to the Festival of Lights.


Festival of Lights attendees across Southern California can avoid holiday traffic and take Metrolink special train service to Riverside’s Festival of Lights on Friday and Saturday from Los Angeles, Oceanside and Perris – South to Riverside – Downtown.

Special Metrolink train service sponsored by Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC), Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) and Los Angeles County Metropolitan Authority (Metro).

Don’t miss your chance to see this annual favorite and saving time and money with Metrolink.
