The 20th Annual Riverside Festival of Lights, a Riverside tradition, took place on November 23, 2012 and started off the holiday season. The “Switch-On Ceremony” featured holiday decorations and lights as well as family-friendly live entertainment.
The night continued with the opening of Main Street’s outdoor ice skating rink. The rink’s hours will be 4-10pm Monday through Thursday, 4-11pm on Friday, and all day starting at noon on Saturday and Sunday. Skating is $10 an hour, and the rink is open throughout the month of December.
