Just as the Easter Bunny hops down the bunny trail, so does Downtown Riverside's Easter Eggstravaganza! This festival is held every year to the delight of local kids who come out to fill their Easter baskets with lots of sweet goodies. In addition to candy-filled eggs, the event features photo ops with the Easter Bunny, face painting, balloon artists, arts and crafts, shopping and dining and lots more. This is not only an memorable community event celebrating Easter, it is also excellent fun for the entire family.
Festival of Lights
One of the most popular events in Riverside around Christmas and New Years is the Annual Festival of Lights. This seasonal event offers good clean family fun in the form of an outdoor skating rink, visits and photos with Santa Claus, various holiday entertainment, reindeer, carriage rides and much more!
Love is most definitely in the air every Valentine's Day in Riverside with Love in Riverside. This annual festival of love is a unique and interactive one. Participants record special Valentine's Day messages for their sweetheart which will be played on the large digital LED screen in front of the Culver Center of the Arts.
Mardi Gras Pub Crawl
Even though New Orleans is a good distance from Riverside, this charming California city does a more than admirable job of capturing that Cajun spirit with its annual Mardi Gras Pub Crawl. Typically held the weekend before Fat Tuesday, this highly entertaining festival is put on by Community Connect. Get ready to treat your senses, as the crawl features a jazz musician leading the way through the bars that all offer discounted specialty drinks and appetizers. There are also drawings, beads and masks, and coffee and plenty of entertainment included with the purchase of your ticket.
