More Fun in Riverside!

Well, we had a fabulous time at the Long Night of Arts & Innovation.  How about you?  It was wonderful seeing Downtown teeming with activity.  The exhibits along Main street between University and Mission were loads of fun, and all of the galleries and museums put a lot of effort into having great exhibits and activities going on.  What was your favorite part of the evening?
If you’re looking for fun events this weekend, there is something for everyone.  Two events that caught our eye are the Mayor’s Ball for the Arts & Innovation tonight, and the Citrus Classic Bike Ride event tomorrow.  Both are events which support great causes.  The Mayor’s Ball, which will be celebrating their 35th year tonight, supports the Arts Council, and the Citrus Classic Supports Riverside Educational and Enrichment Foundation (REEF).


One of Riverside’s longest running and most exciting annual events arrives with a whole new look as the Mayor’s Ball for Arts and Innovation transforms the sixth floor of Downtown Riverside’s elegant Citrus Tower into a celebration unlike any other.  The event highlights the City’s finest artists and arts organizations, along with the technology research and education that have helped make Riverside the Most Intelligent City in the World.  Music, performance, exhibition, dancing and a Taste of Riverside-style representation of some of the City’s best restaurants combine with the most unique event location of all time to create a night to remember.  Tickets are $75, and all proceeds from the event support the Riverside Arts Council and their Community Arts Partnership program, serving nearly 80,000 residents through grants provided to non-profit arts and cultural organizations.  For more information, visit the Arts Council’s Website today or call (951) 680-1345 !


The Riverside Citrus Classic is a fundraising event which was started by the Leadership Riverside Class of 2010.  They felt that creating an event which would support our local schools with grants and funding for classrooms was an important endeavor.  Little did they know who successful and fun the event would become.  Three years later, we’re expecting over 1,000 riders to participate in the event.  There is something for everyone!  Organized rides include a 100 mile, 50 mile , 28 mile, 7mile, and a Kiddie ride.  Come out and enjoy the fun!!  They are holding registration in the old Boarders at the Riverside Plaza today from 2-6pm!  It is not too late to join the fun.  If you’re pre-registered for the event already, beat the crowds and go down today to pick up your number, shirt, and goodie bag.

For more information on the event, visit the City’s Page for the Citrus Classic event.
