Inland Empire Christmas Events 2021
This is our favorite time of year here at the Lisa DiNoto Group. It’s that special time of year when you get to celebrate the season and enjoy in some holiday cheer! We compiled a list of some events in the Inland Empire to check out with you and your family!
Christmas Lights In Rancho Cucamonga- Thoroughbred Holiday Lights
The grandest Christmas light display of them all is found right here in the heart of Rancho Cucamonga. The Thoroughbred Christmas Lights in Rancho Cucamonga, sometimes called “Alta Loma Christmas Lights,” are a long-standing Christmas tradition that has been enjoyed by locals and beyond for over 20 years. The Christmas lights installation in Rancho Cucamonga brings in countless families every single year, and this year should be no exception!
The city of Rancho Cucamonga has cracked down on the holiday lights on Thoroughbred. The City has implemented a Drive-Thru Only = December 10th – 24th 5:00-11:00 pm. General public/pedestrians will not be allowed to walk the holiday display during these designated dates. It’s best to plan ahead and bring the family as soon as possible. The closer to Christmas it becomes, the more crowds you can expect.
