Mission Inn - Festival of Lights

The Festival of Lights is a yearly occurrence. The street in front of the house fills with cars and all the parking is gobbled up. Throngs of people march to the downtown area around the Mission Inn. The RCC band was playing music this year. There were vendors hawking kettle corn and the likes. We went down and stood among the masses in a darkened state waiting for the countdown to bring light.

The Darkens before

Words were spoken, dignitaries recognized, the Mayor then spoke and finally, the Keeper of the Inn – Duane Roberts. If I heard right, a jolly old fellow was to flip the switch. We all started counting down from ten. And then there was light and fireworks. The fireworks seemed to be synchronized with he music of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and the other tunes that were played.

Emily made it to the celebration shortly after it started. We enjoined the lights and soon left the crowd behind. We made it home to enjoy some ice cream and other treats.
