The festival is free for the general public and is a way to connect and give back to the community. The Mission Inn takes a whole city block, and each side of the building shines with Christmas decorations.

The Christmas lights are everywhere. Also, there are many fairy tale Christmas characters, Santa Claus with his sleigh and reindeer.

Every palm tree has many lights, the trunk, the crown – everywhere you look; there are Christmas lights. Various Christmas themes are elegantly selected and displayed.

Visitors can enjoy the Mission Inn Festival of Lights from the comfort of beautiful horse-drawn carriages. Carriages themselves are a piece of art and are brightly lit with lights as well.
