A local church is set to host a Christmas party at Lake
Elsinore’s historic Aimee’s Castle, and the public is invited.
“Christmas at the Castle” is scheduled Dec. 21 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. and features guided tours of the home, Christmas music, refreshments and a candlelight service that will begin at 6:30 p.m.
Tours will be offered in English and Spanish, and all are welcome, according to a news release from The Rock, which is hosting the free event and is part of the Foursquare church denomination founded by original castle owner and evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson.
In the late 1920s, McPherson commissioned architect Edwin Bickman to design the Moorish Revival castle above the lake's northeastern shore. The property has long been the subject of great interest and fascination due to its unique architecture and spiritual heritage.
During the Dec. 21 event, parking will be available offsite at Realty Center Inc., 30713 Riverside Dr., Lake Elsinore, with complimentary shuttle service to and from the castle. For more information and to RSVP, visit www.christmasatthecastle.net or call 951-226-7914.
