Enjoy a magical evening at La Purisima Mission during the annual Candlelight Tour – one night only – September 22, 2018 – from 6:00 to 9:00 pm in Lompoc.
Participants will gather for an escorted candle lit tour in evening twilight at La Purisima Mission. Tours proceed through the historic grounds and step back in time to 1822 to the sights, sounds and smells of evening activities of mission life. By the glow of candlelight reenacted scenes are sometimes poignant, sometimes humorous and always entertaining. While on tour dinner is served in La Sala before returning through the garden and back to the 21st century.
Tickets are $40 per person, advance purchase only, non-refundable and for a specific tour time. Participation is limited to age 6 and above. Space is limited. No pets allowed. Rain or shine.
Because the tour portion takes place in 1822 long before electronic inventions, audio and visual recordings are only appropriate during the dinner reception. The natural pathway and the centuries old floors are often uneven requiring great care along the way – appropriate footwear is recommended. Parking is included in ticket price.
Candlelight Tour is a magical evening made possible through the caring efforts of both the volunteers of Prelado De Los Tesoros and the California State Parks staff of La Purisima Mission. Proceeds and donations from this event will assist in the preservation, protection and interpretation of the distinct heritage and rich history of La Purisima Mission.
