Interactive UC Riverside experience at the Riverside Festival of Lights

Visitors at the Riverside Festival of Lights – ranked by USA Today at the best public holiday lights display in the U.S. – will have access to multiple UC Riverside-themed activities. 

During the first two weeks of the Riverside Festival of Lights, can visit and take photos at the UC Riverside Snow Globe Experience. The massive UCR-themed snow globe, which is free and open to the public, features a 20-foot-high replica of the university’s iconic bell tower along with stories from the Beyond Brilliant campaign.

In the final two weeks of the festival, guests can enjoy a UCR-themed photo station at the "Communitrees" exhibit near City Hall. It features an opportunity to write personal greetings on orange ornaments, and a venue designed for holiday photos.
